|Habitante incierto, El 2004 Spain The Uninvited Guest|
Hence, the sudden remake. El Habitante incierto was a brilliantly conceived film that could have been executed better so the director takes a mulligan. That's cool. I look forward to it and hope he does a better job explaining Vera's sudden muteness upon being shot in the plot hole we all saw coming like an eighteen wheeler.
OK. She was shot in the mouth/vocal chords and it just took a couple days without food or water to get her voice back at film's end.
I give the first half a 9, the second half a 5. Let's call it a 7 and anxiously await the do-over.
Summary: AKA The Uncertain Guest
What if ... you let a stranger into your house to use your phone, but while you've been patiently waiting in the kitchen, he just disappears ... or does he? Félix, an architect who has just split up with his girl-friend and inhabits a huge mansion in Barcelona, finds out how many hiding places there really are in his house. But are there enough to hide another person, a strange parasite of living space? Or is Félix really going insane?
