| Nice but irregular thriller
Miguel Bardem is one of the latest off springs of a well-known family of actors, directors, composers and writers. His previous films have been very irregular, since "Más que amor, frenesí" was nice, "La mujer más fea del mundo" was too weird to my taste and "Noche de reyes" was a complete failure. "Incautos" is his best film so far, but still has a few gaps in the screenplay and its pacing.

Three actors in a state of grace (Ernesto Alterio, Victoria Abril and Federico Luppi are great) are involved in a plot that might remind the viewer of Stephen Frears' "The Grifters". Although the film starts well, the ending is somehow too twisted and some pivotal points in the plot are barely explained. Maybe all the events going on in the first hour could be cleared by a second viewing, but the screenplay should explain everything by itself in a single viewing.

"Incautos" is technically good, specially cinematography and score, and the cast is outstanding (apart from the three leading actors, Manuel Morón and Manuel Alexandre are a delight to watch). Therefore, a better structured screenplay would have helped to make this film a really great one.

Overall rating: 6/10
