Movie Reviews

Gripping Spanish thriller-drama
LGwriter | Astoria, N.Y. United States | 08/22/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Enrique's Urbizu's Caja 507 (Box 507) is a strong, perfectly-plotted thriller that fuses crime and political corruption seamlessly. A bank manager's 16-year old daughter perishes while inside a tent in a forest fire and, seven years later, as the result of the robbery of the his bank, the manager discovers documents in one of the safety deposit boxes (hence the title) that relates to his daughter's death.

In the meantime, the corrupt former police chief becomes aware of these now-missing documents. The two men each independently track down those linked to what they must find, and this tracking down is the core of this excellent thriller. Involved here are the Mafia, corrupt officials, a sick wife, and a helpful reporter. The relentless momentum of the plotting is truly gripping and hair-raising; this is a film that can easily stand as a brilliant model of how to write and direct a thriller.

Highly recommended."
