MATILDA, YOUR FATHER IS A BIG...

This is an Argentine movie. I watched it in English with English subtitles. Coco and Pipi, a young couple are stocking up in the grocery store. While they are checking out, their conversation is mundane and ranges from his shirt and only buying one light bulb. Meanwhile people are in a panic, pushing carts into the store. Sirens are going off. They live in an apartment building.

As it turns out there is a deadly virus being spread throughout the world. 7 nations have been infected. When 2 people from the apartment building contract the disease, the authorities quarantine the building. The residents stay mostly in their apartments, with the men coming out at times. Horatio believes in conspiracy theories and contends the virus was created to reduce the world's population. One neighbor is sick, but does he have the disease? Two of the neighbors want to isolate him in a different apartment...oh yes he has stockpiles of food. The outside world doesn't answer their 911 calls. The neighbors form alliances and battle each other while the world outside falls apart.

Unlike "Quarantine", there are no rabid creatures. There is no real horror aspect. The English translation was smooth and natural. At times the movie is a drama and sometimes it is a dark comedy.

PARENTAL GUIDE: F-bomb, no sex or nudity.

Now, this was rather interesting...

I stumbled upon the 2010 Argentine movie "Fase 7" (aka "Phase 7") by random luck in 2021. And since it was a movie that I wasn't familiar with or hadn't already seen, of course I sat down to watch it.

Sure, I didn't know what the movie was about, but I must say that writer and director Nicolás Goldbart definitely surprised me with this movie. "Fase 7" had something really working for it, and while it wasn't a zombie movie as per se, it definitely had that dystopian thing going on. And I must say that this movie definitely felt like something that belonged right up there with the movie "Rec". In fact, "Fase 7" is so well-constructed that it could very well have been an alternate story told in the area where "Rec" took place.

The storyline in "Fase 7" is entertaining and it is one that you quickly get submerged in. And director Nicolás Goldbart definitely did a good job in keeping the movie fast paced and gradually building up the storyline.

"Fase 7" is carried by some very good and believable acting performances. Now, I can't claim to be familiar with the cast, as I haven't watched all that many Argentine movies. But I will say that the actors and actresses in "Fase 7" definitely put on good performances and carried the movie quite well.

This was a rather nice surprise of a movie. And if you haven't already seen "Fase 7", and if you like movies such as "Rec" or the American remake "Quarantine", then you will definitely also like "Fase 7".

My rating of "Fase 7" lands on a six out of ten stars. This was a very enjoyable and watchable movie. Personally I would have liked for zombies to show up here, but hey, wishful thinking.

Nicely made Ballardian epidemic movie

A block of flats is quarantined off as a result of a deadly virus that is sweeping the world. The inhabitants quickly succumb to psychological deterioration as paranoia and claustrophobia set in.

This Argentinean epidemic movie is pretty impressive. Its setting is necessarily limited but the film-makers make the most of it. The narrative is powered mainly by a decent array of characters, well played by the entire cast. The dramatic tensions in Phase 7 come not so much from the virus but from the interactions between the neighbours. As time goes on the microcosmic society of the tower block breaks down and primal instincts begin to take over. The scenario is not unlike one you would imagine J.D. Ballard coming up with, with its look at social norms deteriorating rapidly as they are tested under unusual conditions. The movie benefits too from a nice moody soundtrack that recalls the work of John Carpenter. There is at least one very well executed – and unexpected – gore scene too. In fact, the movie moves into some quite tense thriller territory in the final third. So overall, it tries to make the most of its basic set-up and deliver some suspense and atmosphere along the way. Phase 7 is a very worthwhile psychological sci-fi thriller.
