Storyline

The plot is based on a true story that happened in the late '40s in a small village in Uruguay. The film focuses on Laura, who, second by second, intends to leave a house, which hides an obscure secret, unharmed. Laura and her father Wilson settle down in a cottage they have to renew since its owner will soon put the house up for sale. They will spend the night there and repair the following morning. Everything seems to go smoothly until Laura hears a sound that comes from outside and gets louder and louder on the upper floor of the house. Wilson goes up to see what is going on while she remains downstairs on her own, waiting for her father to come down. Written by Anonymous

Boring, Disappointing and Predictable, with Many Fake Reviews Promoting this Flick
12 November 2011 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Laura (Florencia Colucci) and her father Wilson (Gustavo Alonso) come to an abandoned house to shear the garden since the owner Néstor (Abel Tripaldi) intends to sell the house. During the night, Laura hears noises on the second floor and her father goes upstairs to calm Laura down.

Sooner Laura finds Wilson bleeding and she sees someone with a knife in the house. When she flees, she finds Néstor driving on the lonely secondary road and she tells that there is a stranger in the house. Néstor forces Laura to return to the house with him and he is also stabbed. Laura stays with Néstor and they learn who the killer is.

I had a great expectation and curiosity with "La Casa Muda", which is the Uruguayan candidate to the Best Foreign Language Film category of the Oscar 2012 and also presented in Cannes. Unfortunately it is a boring, disappointing and predictable film. From the first very first scene, I found that something was wrong with Laura, but the twist is awfully flawed. In the end of the credits, there is a long scene of Laura walking and having a conversation with her daughter Sofi. Last but not the least, "The Circle" (2005) with the cult actress Angela Bettis, is a digital movie shot entirely in one take and in real time. My vote is four.

Title (Brazil): "A Casa" ("The House")
