Stockholm (Estocolmo) None stars

Stockholm (Estocolmo) movie poster

He (Javier Pereira) is what’s known as a “cool guy,” a salt-of-the-earth type to his male friends and a bastard to every female He meets. He finds his latest prey, She (Aura Garrido), while out clubbing. After a few minutes of meaningless small talk, the seasoned horndog not only expresses undying love, He hands over the house and car keys saying, “If you don’t sleep with me, I don’t want them.”

How is it that audiences can instantly detect a heel, but our heroine can’t? It doesn’t take much to see the foreshadowing on the wall and the inevitable cop-out ending, which, while intended to shock and disturb, does neither. Directed (and co-authored) by Rodrigo Sorogoyen.

2013.
