Did he kill her?
A man wakes up in a hotel room where he finds his mistress killed. He’s arrested and charged with murder. He’s getting ready for the trial, and he gets help from an elderly woman who’s an expert in preparing her clients for the trial. He says he’s innocent and that there must have been someone else in the room who killed his mistress. But why was she killed, and what is he hiding?
I didn’t think this would be one of my favorite movies of 2018 when I watched it. This is a Spanish movie directed by Oriol Paulo. He had only made one movie before this, The Body (2012), and I will definitely watch it since I loved The Invisible Guest.
I don’t want to spoil the story too much, but you could say that The Invisible Guest is in the same street as a classic directed by a fairly well-known director who has made a cult movie. I don’t want to say more than that. When you see the ending, I reckon you will understand which movie I meant.
The Invisible Guest is an engaging movie that never gets boring. We get several interpretations of what happened in the hotel room before the mistress got murdered. This is a movie you can watch several times. You get a lot of information in a short time. It’s a movie that tells its story in a very engaging and good way that makes it worth watching several times. I can’t stress enough how great the stortelling in The Invisible Guest is. Time just flies away.
It should be said that I knew what was going on after around 50 minutes. You sense that there’s something wrong with one of the characters in the movie. I’m not going to say more than that. I saw some minor details that confirmed the suspicion I got with a certain character. But I didn’t know what had happened in the hotel room, and the movie has two big surprises. One surprise punches you hard in the stomach, and the other surprise brings out the smile in you if you are a hard-boiled movie fan.
If you like smart crime movies where you don’t quite know what to believe, then this is a perfect movie that deserves to be watched by many. You sympathize with the parents of the missing man, and you dislike the lovers. But not everything you believe is the truth, so this will be an engaging journey from the first to the last second. I guarantee you that!
