Chamber of Secrets

Thriller The Hidden Face, Review of which will tell you about what jealousy can lead to, represents a new title by director Andrés Baiz, depicting a conflict of mind with passionate senses.

A psychological thriller, The Hidden Face (La Cara Oculta, 2011), came to Russia this fall, although its shooting was completed in the year of 2011. Joint venture by teams from Spain and Colombia led allowed to stay low-budget, but still following the original creative ideas. The movie was brought together by such studios as Avalon, Cactus Flower, Dynamo, when they took over the production, and afterwars Fox International has acquired all the rights for distribution in many foreign countries.

The project was formed under the leadership of eight experienced producers, many of which are united by a common one previous project – the horror film Satanas (2007). The list includes Andres Calderon, his own namesake, Andrés Fernando Calderón, Juliana Florez and also the executive producer Rodrigo Guerrero. Of course, they didn’t stop short of bringing new partners to the team, but still all the basic rules were drafted by these specialists.

Director and screenwriter for The Hidden Face film shot with minimal cast and expenses was Andrés Baiz, who held the same place during filming the Satanas movie, where young Martina Garcia also played. The latter one has entered her second collaboration with Andrés and wasn’t shy about a lot of her character’s nude scenes. In turn, her on-screen partner Clara Lago also agreed to some of such.

However, the popular melodrama Tengo Ganas De Ti (2012), where Clara Lago was playing one of the leading parts, took its weight. Since the rising fame for a star limits the creative freedom for the director in terms of writing in erotic scenes. New faces in the cast help to add some freshness, while not distracting the audience from the main heroes. The visual style of this script has been thoroughly worked out, and even large mirrors play a vital part in the whole story.

Convoluted plot thriller The Hidden Face immediately generates a number of associations. One quickly arises with the literary story of Bluebeard (1697) about one ill polygamist and his cellar with a door that should have never been opened. However, here all of them quickly lose relevance. Instead of an old fairytale remake the creators focused on an emotional script with clear dramatic lines, dedicated to women’s actions, feelings and intrigues.
