Paying homage to the likes of cinema’s greatest thrillers such as Rififi and The Great Escape – and doing so with remarkable accomplishment – is writer-director Rodrigo Grande’s taut, tightly-paced and highly suspenseful At the End of the Tunnel.
The film stars Leonardo Sbaraglia (Wild Tales) as Joaquín, a grieving widower, mourning the loss of both his wife and child in a car accident that left him paralysed from the waist down. Joaquín rents out a room in his house to an exotic dancer and her daughter, though he begins to suspect his boarder is not all that she appears.
Featuring Sbaraglia in one of the most impressively physical performances from someone whose movements are restricted, this is a film packed with countless twists, turns and snags that ratchets up the tension with every plot reveal. For those who like their cinema viewing on the edge of their seat, At the End of the Tunnel does not fail to deliver.
