Have you ever wondered what French comedy Intouchables would look like if the two protagonists were unlikeable? Then Friend is just the right film for you, for it is an extremely tight psychological thriller in which the tension between them builds slowly but unstoppably until the emotionally charged climax. With 20 years of experience with short films and documentaries, director Óscar Martín shows all his amazing skills in his debut feature, and the same goes for both lead actors Javier Bote (Rec!, The Mummy, Crimson Peak) and David Parejo who also co-wrote the script together with the director.
