The English subtitles are NOT great. If you speak Spanish, you will get a little bit more "juice" and a little bit more "personality" out of this movie.

I found the pace and length to be OK. I was enjoying the cinematography. But another person watching the movie with me complained about slow pace, and that the movie was too long,

There is a mystery as a central part of the story, but the director treats the mystery / whodunit as something *almost* incidental. Maybe the final result is a movie that is not very conventional.
I think it is a solid 3 stars. But it's not for everybody.

A slow moving thriller with Penelope Cruz returning to her small hometown in Spain for her sister's wedding. During the wedding there is an unfortunate incident that brings out the worst in the people in the family and village. Both Bardem and Cruz are quite good in their roles and director Asghar Farhadi who is better known for the The Salesman does a good job setting up the story and there is plenty of beautiful photography of the Spanish countryside. If there is a flaw though that it tries for Hitchcock but the pace is a little too slow and the tension not really ratcheted up enough. A good film that requires a bit a patience.

Found this subtitle movie to be a boring drama where I found myself drifting off for a snooze although the movie is English subtitle. Each time I woke up I did not even bother to rewind and I swear I did not miss anything in the movie. Very dragged out kidnapping story.

Most of viewers are familar with Penélope Cruz and Javier Bardem. The third actor with less face time is Ricardo Darín whose three films I have watched are all 4 stars good: XXY - 2008, The secret in their eyes - 2010 and Wild tales - 2015. While the theme on the surface is about a crisis-mystery, but the spirit is on Madrid's deep rooted rural culture that, in this story, has gone very wrong.

This is a solid Spanish family drama, with very good performances from Cruz, Braden and Darin. Worth watching!
