Intacto creates a thoroughly believable, yet fantastic universe woven from the fabric of our own world, with a plot that is both absurd and deceptively simple. Juan Carlos Fresnadillo’s admitted influences—Stanley Kubrick, Alfred Hitchcock, David Lynch and David Cronenberg among them—are quite apparent. As he says, “I like films where the filmmaker’s personality is stamped on every frame. They create a new vision of the world.” He has integrated those influences into a style all his own—an exciting, elegant debut.

Sam—a Holocaust survivor with a decidedly sinister mien—operates
a series of underground gaming events in which luck is the sole determinant
of success. And Sam never loses. Estranged former protegé Frederico
(the great Eusebio Poncela, familiar from his many roles in early
Pedro Almodovar films) returns to the casino with Tomas (Leonardo
a young man so lucky he is sure he can take the old man down. That
is, of course, if Tomas can disentangle himself from his girlfriend
(newcomer Monica Lopez) who raises the stakes in what turns out
to be a deadly game.
Warning: This film contains adult subject matter and coarse language
