Eric Kohn – Indiewire

Starring Érica Rivas (Wild Tales), Nahuel Pérez Biscayart (BPM – Beats Per Minute) and Almodóvar regular Cecilia Roth, THE INTRUDER, directed by Natalia Meta (Death in Buenos Aires) is a giallo-infused psycho-sexual thriller destined to become one of the most talked about features of the year.

Inés works as a dubbing actress and sings in a choir in Buenos Aires. While on an idyllic trip she suffers a traumatic episode that she can’t recover from. She has trouble sleeping and experiences very vivid nightmares as strange sounds begin to emerge from inside her. Awake, Inés feels suddenly surrounded by people that seem to come from her dreams.
