IT’S ONLY A MATTER OF TIME.
A trip to a secluded beach, arranged by the staff at a tropical holiday resort, turns into a nightmare for the guests. A thriller that looks like an episode of The Twilight Zone or Fantasy Island – M. Night Shyamalan is the right filmmaker to stage a story about people who realize that they’re trapped in a place where they are growing older fast. Never dull, but a bit of a mess, constantly falling short of providing a satisfying amount of thrills or emotion. Gael Garcia Bernal and Vicky Krieps’s couple are frustratingly aloof to us.
