Cinematic masterpiece for sure, the topic of OUIJA, friends with nothing more to do in a night, trying a little game and catching a spirit is something right out of Hollywood "cliche" routine, but, surprisingly brilliant in this little piece of drama-comedy done by indie Argentinians.
Absolutely everything in this movie fits with perfect timing, although not all actors are good, the lead young actor and Ivan Espeche as Canaveri form a very magic duo that absolutely works on screen.
The chemistry is there all the time, the humor parts are really funny and the serious parts are, well, deep. The movie has a beautiful redeeming ending with both a deep meaning to each of our characters and nice humor with it.
I can't even begin to describe how beautiful this movie is, how good the subject of out of body, possession and spirits are handled by this movie, almost with utter respect yet with a fun side to it.
It's amazing such a wonderful movie could be made with almost no actors, the two lead parts take about 85% of screen time. This young talented actors, directors and producers should be commended. This is what cinema is really about, telling a good story, following through without loosing it's touch, connecting with the viewers by showing the character's personalities and motivations and use humor to lighten up the mood.
Simply beautiful, if you like ghost stories well written and full of good heart and redeeming qualities PLEASE go see this movie, it deserves your full attention.
My score 10 out of 10 and one of the best underestimated jewels of Argentina cinema.
