I don't usually review movies as I'm better at watching them than writing about them. However, I saw this last night at TIFF and since there's nothing here I thought I'd start things off.
The film was shot in Peru, the director's original home, and tries as much as possible to capture that noir look. It's a nice film to watch, and the plot is interesting and leaves you trying to fit everything together in your head after the movie's complete.
I thought the acting wasn't anything to write home about, but was perfectly fine for this movie.
Overall: 8/10. I'd recommend it.
