    Drama, Sci-fi

    Threatened by the end of the world, a group of Buenos Aires residents receive lessons in survival at a resort in the marshy Tigre delta. The Austrian background of Rinner, who trained in Argentina, shines through in this bitterly comical stylisation of human failings when face-to-face with the apocalypse.

    A disturbing drama with touches of suspense that presents an almost apocalyptic vision of human survival.

    An excellent and unexpected disaster movie.

    Vitor Pinto, Cineuropa

    Fitfully amusing and pleasingly unpredictable.
