ORIGINAL TITLE: Buried
DIRECTED BY: Rodrigo Cortes
STARS: Ryan Reynolds
RUNTIME: 95 minutes
SYNOPSIS: Buried presents an excitingly radical narrative challenge: Ryan Reynolds plays Paul Conroy, a father and civilian contractor in Iraq who wakes to find he’s been buried alive in an old wooden coffin, with only an exhausted mobile phone to help him escape this nightmare. It’s a desperate race against time: with hardly any mobile coverage and a dying battery, he only has 90 minutes to be rescued before he runs out of oxygen.
“An exercise in full tension with wit that would make Hitchcock stir in his grave”
«Your heart will burst, you will not be able to breathe…BURIED has it all: it is unique, it is innovative, with a great artistic vision, inventive direction, a perfect script, and ever-mounting tension that builds until you don’t think you’ll be able to take it anymore …The premise is simple, the location is simple, yet the direction and the interpretation are not… All credit to Rodrigo Cortés for making a film like this visually captivating in every frame »
