    D'oh! I should have recognized it as being Italian, but I misread it as Spanish. This is why I shouldn't post at 3 am in the morning.

    I liked this poster better.

    As for the film, it's pretty dopey, to the extent that nitpicking the screenplay and guffawing in disbelief at its increasingly ludicrous machinations is half the fun, especially since it hardly convinces as a straight thriller. That said, there are traces of deterministic subtext that cleverly conflate the professional detachment of the protagonists, all young Wall Street upstarts, with the (hardly convincing) mathematical precision of the antagonist's methods, and the direction is reasonably competent for a low-budget debut effort. I wouldn't recommend the film, but I could see the director moving on to better things.

    The film is very dopey as Rowland said, but it's engaging and that's why it works for me. The only real question I have is, "so there was no motive"?
