The film is well acted and well directed. It's in Spanish, although there are English sub-titles.
On arrival he is shown around by his new work mates, they explain the facility is falling apart and as they do so, a piece of the ceiling collapses and hits Juan on the head, rendering him unconscious. They take him into the empty, but spooky, Cell 211. This happens to coincide with the signal for the riot to begin. Juan is out cold and his new colleagues decide to make a brave but strategic withdrawal, leaving him in the cell.
This is also no ordinary wing it is the Segregation Wing as we would call it (DSS in Spain). It houses the worst prisoners including lifers and those with full blown AIDS. It is run by a rather unsavoury character called Malamadre (Luis Tozan - who is very impressive). Juan comes around and realises that he is in the middle of a riot and quickly realise that his best bet to survive the carnage is to pretend to be a new inmate.
What unfolds in less than predictable, it is taut, well acted, brutal and gripping. The plot turns and twists are informed more by lack of professionalism on the part of the authorities than on the guile of Juan - but that plays a big part too. The inmates are all believable especially the Colombians and the ETTA guys who are in a separate part of the wing, but the prisoners know all about it.
Director Daniel Monzon has made a brilliant piece of cinema here, and it gets better when you see the budget and constraints he worked in (a budget of just over five and a half million Euros). It may not have an original theme but it does have an original execution. It runs to 113 minutes of mostly edge of the set stuff and I recommend you see this version before the Hollywood one comes out in 2013.
