Elizabeth Cervantes & Joana Rañé in "Volverás" [Spain, Mexico 2002]

I'll finish the year with Antonio Chavarrías' thriller, "Volverás" [Eng. Title: You'll be Back]. While it is an engaging film that keeps your attention through, it will leave you a bit deflated towards the end. It is nevertheless, Recommended Viewing.

Ignasio is an aspiring architect - hoping to join his father's firm one day, and has been offered a scholarship to further his studies in America. He invites girlfriend Claudia to come along but she's undecided, weary of being dependent upon him. Ignasio bumps into elder brother Carlos whom he hadn't seen in a few years. Carlos is now a washed up and down-on-luck gambler who just doesn't know how to quit, and his Mexican girlfriend Marta is increasingly getting frustrated with him. The dynamic between Carlos and Ignasio is firmly established, as we see the elder brother had always enjoyed pushing Ignasio towards danger since childhood. The younger sibling meekly does whatever he's asked to do, so he win his brother's approval. Carlos is now in great debt with people hunting for him, and he decides to drag Ignasio too along the precipice.
