Family Style Clue Mystery Dominates Everybody Knows
Bardem and Cruz's characters are intriguing, interesting and posses an air of mystery that keeps you mesmerized as to whether or not Irene lives or dies. The random reveal of Alejandro (Irene's Dad) and his unemployment/drinking issues does little to move the plot along and the longer it all moves the less you seem to care. Only when the final details are divulged and the screen fades to white during the final scene in the square, do you begin to care about what happens next.
