What is the most important thing to you? Is it the way you show yourself to the world? The way they look at you? Or is it family? Or is it to do what is right? And what happens when all the answers to those questions are in conflict to each other?
Argentinian director Sebastián Schindel bases the narrative of his most recent film Crímenes de Familia (International Title: The Crimes that Bind) – an extremely interesting study of characters, which mixes elements of suspense, social criticism and legal drama – on the question above.
Now, if in the 99 minutes of footage of the film, you have been left with any doubts, concerns and questions, do not worry, because right now and without further ado, we will explore in deep this movie, and what is the meaning of its ending.

And curiously, although the efforts of the streaming giant have gone to every corner of the planet, it is Europe the one assuming the runner-up title, turning Spanish productions (Money Heist, Elite), German (Dark), Italian (The Trial) and even Swedes (Bonus Family).

I admit it – every time Netflix breaks the ice with a new film coming from Spain, I have serious doubts about pushing the Play button. I am not really sure why. Maybe it is the lack of balance between art and entertainment, or maybe it is the thick accent (Colombian Spanish is my native language), or maybe it is that I just prefer new films coming from the anglosphere. I do not know. Maybe it is a mix of everything. But The Warning (Original Name: El Aviso) – the most recent spanish Netflix fim – has just proved me wrong. Totally wrong.
This film is so well-made and exciting that definitely I will have zero doubts next time I find another spanish release on Netflix. This good impression is a consequence of the thriller nature of the movie, that combines suspense, superstition, mathematics, parallel timelines, and of course, some drama as well. So many elements, that you may find yourself wondering what just happened in the movie when the credits roll. But do not worry, we will try to answer every single question you may have about The Warning. Just keep reading!

Let’s go step by step. What Sam (Kat Graham) and Jeremiah (Mark O’Brien) told Will (Theo James) is that there was a strong telluric movement, accompanied by thunderous sounds, which then gave way to a tsunami of gigantic proportions.
