| Intriguing and suspense movie by Eloy de la Iglesia with a lot of twists and turns
No heard a scream or Nadie oyo' gritar is a suspenseful and thrilling Spanish movie. After leaving his lover Oscar : Antonio Casas in the metropolis London, Elisa :Carmen Sevilla goes to her lonely urbanization, a solitary building with a few neighbours and a deaf porter : Goyo Lebrero. One day, Elisa sees how her next man door Miguel, Vicente Parra, throws down a murdered woman into the elevator. Then, Miguel threatens and coerces her to disappear the corpse. Along the way Elisa falls in love for him .Things go awry when there shows up her nephew and lover, Tony Isbert.

This thrilling picture has a twisted plot plenty of turns and surprises. Harshly paced in fits and starts and taking parts here and there of other suspense movies. The picture displays an interesting intrigue in Hitchcockian style with tension, suspense, thrills and an unexpected denouement. It belongs to a quartet of Eloy de la Iglesia films characterized by enhancing the erotic and suspenseful aspects such as El Techo de Cristal, La semana del asesino, and Una gota de sangre para vivir amando.

It contains an evocative and adequate cinematography by Francisco Fraile. As well as an anticlimatic musical score by Fernando Garcia Morcillo. The motion picture was professionally direted by Eloy de La Iglesia, but it has failures, flaws and gaps. Eloy de la Iglesia was a talented Spanish movies director , he began working in cinema in 1966 , at his 22 years old , he debuted in a kiddies production , ¨Fantasy 3¨(66) . Following a sordid melodrama ¨Algo Amargo En La Boca¨ (67) and a boxing story , ¨Cuadrilatero¨(69) . De La Iglesia realizes a lot of thrilling pictures with erotic background as ¨Techo Cristal¨(70) , ¨Nadie Oyó Gritar¨ (72) , ¨Gota Sangre Para Seguir Amando¨ (73) , and scabrous tales as ¨Juegos Amor Prohibido¨(75) , ¨Otra Alcoba¨ (76) . And concerning youthful gay : ¨Placeres Ocultos¨(76) , ¨El Sacerdote¨(78) and politicians : ¨The Deputy ¨, ¨Mujer Del Ministro¨ . Although he became notorious in the years of the Spanish transition to democracy with shocking and polemic films as ¨El Pico 1¨ and 2¨ , ¨Cólegas¨ , ¨Navajeros¨, ¨La Estanquera De Vallecas¨ (87) . All of them dealt with druggies , dope sellers , delinquency , terrorism , underworld suburban and generational problems are the habitual subjects in his films , and specially dedicated to the underworld of heroin ; as well as the gay world . Passing of time hasn't had mercy with most of those movies , but they represented a time and a way of life in the history of Spain ; and now they may seem a little bit naive . His last films were an academic rendition based on Henry James' novel : ¨The turn of the screw¨ and ¨Los Novios Búlgaros¨.
