The Invisible Guest (Contratiempo) Movie Review

The movie starts with Mario Casas as Adrián Doria a successful businessman who is in an affair with Bárbara Lennie as Laura Vidal after both being married. Now Adrián and Laura decide to meet in one hotel. But Laura got killed then because the hotel room is closed from inside police arrives and Adrián is charged for the murder of Laura. Now Ana Wagener as Virginia Goodman one of the best defense attorney is hired by Adrián. Now before the court legal battle in 3 hours, Adrián has to tell Virginia about what happened. Virginia is not ready to take case of Adrián with half-truth so she insists Adrián tell all the truth. Then every single aspect of this case is revealed by Adrián. You will watch an amazing debate between Adrián and Virginia for finding the best way to prove Adrián innocent. The movie has turns and twists which are totally unexpected. The movie has a unique story which they presented very nicely. In every scene from starting of the movie, you will be curious about what will going to happen next. Till the end, the main suspense is unrevealed by the director. I am a fan of the director Oriol Paulo from his movie Mirage (2018) and this movie is surely his one of the best movie. All actors did good acting. Especially with the acting of Ana Wagener and Mario Casas, I am very impressed. If we talk about negative points I wish Daniel's mother and father's characters should be more explored in the movie. Also ending of the movie looks a little unrealistic. Overall I believe you must watch this movie.
