Marina Antunes [Celluloid 02.06.13] Spain post apocalyptic thriller

Agoraphobia can be debilitating. Sufferers fear going outside and in some cases, they also fear wide open spaces which could be problematic for well, doing pretty much anything outdoors. Now imagine that an epidemic sweeps the world and everyone is afflicted with agoraphobia. Pretty soon cities would appear deserted almost as if the apocalypse had hit. It also happens to be the set up for Alex & David Pastor's new movie.

The Carriers directors make their return to Spanish language filmmaking with The Last Days (Los Ultimos Dias), a kind of post apocalyptic thriller which takes place in Barcelona six weeks after a panic sweeps the globe and leaves everyone with a bad case of agoraphobia (or something like it). Mind you, if going outside meant instant death, I'd probably be pretty freaked out about leaving my house too. Marc and Enrique were out when they were afflicted and though Enrique seems happy to live out the rest of his days in the subway system, Marc is determined to find his girlfriend who seems to be stuck in her apartment, without going outside.

The end of the trailer suggests that Marc might make the sacrifice but we'll have to wait to see how things play out. Hopefully we'll have a chance to do so as the movie currently doesn't have any international distribution though it is scheduled for Spanish release on March 27.

Trailer, sadly in Spanish only, is well worth a look.
