Barcelona, Spain. Adrián Doria, a young and successful businessman accused of murder, meets one night with Virginia Goodman, an expert interrogation lawyer, in order to devise a defense strategy.

Our Take

8.0
The Staff

This movie is like thriller-candy. It is full of twists, it is very atmospheric, and in nicely predictable fashion it will deliver that excitement rush we (most of us) love. Accused of murder, a wealthy entrepreneur hires the best witness preparation expert he can find. They have three hours before the trial to come up with the most solid, plausible defence. But ?, a new witness surfaces. Don’t expect anything overly original, but expect to be entertained.

If you can’t find it on Netflix, the English title is The Invisible Guest 🙂

The director Oriol Paulo is also known for El Cuerpo and Los ojos de Julia. He’s a suspense torturer capable of taking a story so simple like the one here and making a complex thriller out of it. He writes and directs all his movies – a true talent.
