Winner of 25 genre festival awards worldwide, Amigo is a darkly comic psychological thriller depicting a bitter power struggle between two best friends. Following a car accident that kills his wife and leaves his best friend David (David Pareja) with nothing but a scratch, Javi (Javier Botet, REC, Crimson Peak) is left bedridden. His body bears deep gashes, his lungs are filled with fluid that make talking painful and near impossible, his legs are inoperable. From scene one, we see the dynamic at play between the two survivors. David carries Javi into the house. They are fresh from the hospital, and David assures Javi that he will be there to care for him. But... something is not right. Javi does not want David’s help. David starts noticing things out of place. He starts suspecting Javi of gaslighting him, despite the fact that Javi can barely move of his own volition. In a series of torturous scenes, the power dynamic settles into a disquieting groove. Reaching an aching fever pitch... Transfixing and deliberately paced Amigo leaves one with an exquisite sense of dread.
