Intacto is a pretty compelling film, built on a great conceit. Luck is a tangible force in this universe, that can be stolen in games of chance. It is a magical realism film, though a little less overt than is typical in that genre. The film moves at a good pace, it plays as a thriller, with an intriguing end-point set up in the first few scenes. Though it is nominally a Spanish film, written and directed by Juan Carlos Fresnadillo, it works a pan-European thriller because of the casting of the Max von Sydow, who raises Intacto to another level with one monologue. Von Sydow is brilliant in the film, in a support role, and rightfully towers over the whole movie. Intacto has some ingenious moments and reveals, including a brilliantly staged blindfolded sprint through a forest. A really solid European thriller.
