Much ado About Nothing.

After the award-winning Thesis and just before taking the big leap to Hollywood with The others, Amenábar invented this fascinating mix of melodrama, intrigue and science fiction, starring an impressive Eduardo Noriega.

‘Whims of destiny’

Random hearts. United States, 1999 (127 minutes). Director: Sydney Pollack. Performers: Harrison Ford, Kristin Scott Thomas, Bonnie Hunt.

Although Sydney Pollack surrounded itself with a cast with guarantees, with a main couple as well known as Harrison Ford and Kristin Scott Thomas, the film was shipwrecked in almost all its pretensions because of a mechanical script and with little emotion. In short, the typical film shot for the show off of Ford, but that leaves the viewer quite cold, despite the relationship of lust established by the protagonists.

23.32 / Movistar Classics

‘The Midnight Express’

Midnight Express. United States, 1978 (121 minutes). Director: Alan Parker. Performers: Brad Davis, Randy Quaid, John Hurt, Bo Hopkins.

Despite a tricky script, manipulated by Alan Parker at will, this film, full of attractions and based on real events, achieved the recognition of both critics and the public. It narrates the extremely difficult moments that a young American has to go through when he is arrested and later imprisoned in a nightmarish prison in Turkey. Complaints against the permanent violation of human rights narrated with crudeness and credibility.

24.00 / Neox

‘The jewel of the Nile’

The jewel of the Nile. United States, 1985 (101 minutes). Director: Lewis Teague. Performers: Michael Douglas, Kathleen Turner, Danny DeVito.

Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner rejoin the lead couple in this decaffeinated sequel to the 1984 Robert Zemeckis-directed film Behind the Green Heart. Lewis Teague (The Lady in Red) had already shown his capacity for this type of story, but the script was too mediocre to bring the film to fruition. Passable and little else.
