Intacto | Chicago Reader


Max von Sydow plays a master gambler presiding over a futuristic casino on a desolate island in this metaphysical thriller (2001), the debut feature of Spanish director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo. A frustrated disciple searches the country for someone who might be desperate enough to beat the master at his chosen game, an elaborate version of Russian roulette, and the unlucky recruit (Leonardo Sbaraglia) must run a diabolical gauntlet of elimination rounds to save his girlfriend from death. Fresnadillo finds himself in a similar position, pacing the film quickly in a race against its far-fetched premise, convoluted plot, and thematic mumbo jumbo about destiny and redemptive love. In Spanish with subtitles.
