John Malkovich?s ambitious directorial debut is set in an unnamed Latin American country. A soft-spoken police detective (played with subtlety by Javier Bardem) is investigating a wave of political killings. Eventually the trail leads to his daughter?s beautiful and alluring ballet teacher who harbors secrets. This is an intelligent film about the unseen political realities that grip Latin America and the human stories behind them.
Directed with confident flair. --Manohla Dargis, Los Angles Times
