Merida Urquia in PVC-1


2007 NR

When a ransom plot goes awry, Benjamin (Hugo Pereira) and his gang of terrorists take the more drastic measure of placing a PVC pipe rigged with explosives around the neck of hostage Elvia (Merida Urquia), while her children and husband (Daniel Páez) watch with horror. A tense standoff ensues in this gripping thriller inspired by actual events. Remarkably, the film was shot in one continuous take.
