Plot – Spoilers:
Middle-aged Hector and wife Clara have recently moved into their country home and are still setting things up. When Clara heads out to pick up groceries, Hector is relieved for the free time because something had caught his eye while gazing through his binoculars – a young woman stripping deep in the woods for no apparent reason.
With Clara away, Hector decides to investigate the nudity and plods his way to the woman who’s now lying unconscious and naked. Before he can really take in the view, he finds himself stabbed in the arm by a bandaged man armed with a scissor.
Timecrimes is similar to Triangle in several ways and in our opinion the better-made one.
