The Body
El cuerpo | Oriol Paulo, 2012
Spain | 95 minutes

A night watchman flees a morgue and runs straight into an oncoming car. Now in a deep coma, he can’t tell why there’s now a body missing. That task falls to Detective Peña, who starts to question all those who knew the missing corpse (played in flashbacks by Belen Rueda)—especially her rather shifty husband, who may or may not hold the key to her disappearance. A crisp thriller that creates a hothouse, claustrophobic atmosphere, The Body keeps the viewer constantly off-balance as it heads to its chilling conclusion.
