Best thriller of of the year!,
This review is from: The Night of the Sunflowers  [DVD] (DVD)Take 6 characters of varying sympathy/unsavouriness, an arid rural Spanish setting, an appalling act of violence and mix with betrayal, guilt and murder and you've got the freshest most elaborate and startling European thriller in years.
Forget TELL NO ONE and LIVES OF OTHERS - this is the best European thriller of the year and the best debut feature since the Coen's BLOOD SIMPLE.
It's more Chabrol than Hitchcock,as it has the same dark, sardonic European sensibility about it.
Jorge Sanchez-Cabezudo is a director to watch. He's a bright and bold talent and this film is an absolute stunner.
The DVD is nicely packaged (GREAT artwork - I LOVE that poster image!!) with some nice extras.
Can't recommend this highly enough!!
