A man (Viggo Mortensen) seeking a new life assumes the identity and life of his dead twin, with unpredictable results. Also with Soledad Villamil and Daniel Fanego. Directed by Ana Piterbarg. In Spanish with English subtitles (original title: "Todos tenemos un plan"). [1:58]

SEX/NUDITY 6 - We see a man and a young woman kissing passionately; they move to the floor and the man thrusts on top of the young woman, and the man then moves toward the young woman's crotch (it is implied that the man is performing oral sex); the man grabs the young woman's breasts (they are covered by a tank top, we do see them in profile and there's no other nudity) and she moans sexually.
 A man and a young woman kiss, the young woman pulls away, saying, "This feels wrong" and she kisses the man on the cheek as she walks away. An older man grabs a young woman's backside, rubbing it as he kisses her face; the young woman looks uncomfortable and a man watching them looks uncomfortable. An older man touches a young woman's face suggestively, tells her to prepare for a date with him later in the day and the young woman is obviously disturbed by the suggestion. A man and a young woman are seen in bed together and the man puts his arms around the young woman. A young woman kisses a man on the forehead.
 We see a man in a bathtub and his bare chest and legs are visible. We see a young girl's bare chest as a male doctor examines her, checking her heart rate.
 A man asks a young woman if she was "with" (sexually) an older man for his money, or if she enjoyed it; the young woman responds it was for both reasons. An older man makes a crude remark about his attraction to a young woman and another man tells him to stop talking about the young woman in that manner.

VIOLENCE/GORE 7 - A man begins to cough and choke as he lies in a bathtub (we see blood come from his mouth), another man watches as he gasps and spits and then grabs him and thrusts him underwater; the man in the bathtub struggles, gasping for air and pulls down a shower curtain that the attacker wraps around the man's face, suffocating him; we see the water of the bathtub is red with blood as the attacking man stumbles backwards in shock and we later see a woman (the wife of the attacking man) discover the dead body in the bathtub.
 An older man, holding a man at gunpoint, tries to shoot him until the man grabs a machete and attacks him: we see the machete cut through the older man's shoulder and he shoots and misses the man who then shoves the older man multiple times, and another man approaches the older man, who is on the ground, and shoots him (we see a spray of blood come from the older man's head); the man holding the machete stumbles toward a young woman and we see that he has a gunshot wound in his chest and we later see a young woman comforting the dying man with blood on his chest (the man coughs and appears to die and we see dried blood spray on his face and the young woman's hands as she tries to comfort him).
 We see an elderly man with his hands tied and mouth covered with duct tape in the bottom of a boat; a man shouts at a young man, saying that he is an idiot for allowing the man to see who was taking him and a man shoots the tied-up elderly man twice in the chest (no blood is visible).
 A man attacks another man, punching him violently and the man fights back, punching the man in the face (we see the man spit out blood), and the attacker knocks the man to the ground and kicks him repeatedly; a second man grabs the man as he attempts to stand up and the two men then punch the man and kick him off a boat dock into a boat (we later see the man with a small cut over his eye).
 A man pulls a gun out and waves it at another man and implies that he wants to die because he has cancer; the sick man tells the other man that he will be paid if he helps him kill himself. An older man, holding a man at gunpoint, shoves a young woman away and then waves the gun at the man's face. A woman shouts at a man and throws a teacup at him (the teacup shatters); the man tries to walk away and the woman screams at him and strikes him repeatedly with her fist and then collapses on the ground in tears as the man locks himself in a room.
 A man walks into a shed where he discovers a teen girl with her mouth covered with tape; the man tries to calm her and we see her crying. A man enters a house and finds a young woman that he had previously suspected of being kidnapped and an older man then holds up a gun and points it at the man.
 A woman is very upset when she realizes that her husband is posing as his dead identical twin and the woman shouts and demands to be released from the jail cell where she is talking to the man. An older man and a man discuss how a teen girl had been kidnapped, and that a young woman would pick up the ransom before the teen girl would be returned. Two men and an older man discuss a plot to find and kidnap a man; one of the men offers that kidnapping the man's young daughter would be "more profitable."
 A boy discovers a dead body, facedown and floating in a marsh. A man has a disturbing nightmare where he imagines suffocating/drowning underwater.
 We see a police interrogation where a police officer had obviously punched a man (we see a cut on his nose that was not previously there) and the officer forces the man's head under water repeatedly, in between questions; we hear the man gasping for air. A man wakes up when police raid his home and we see the man placed in handcuffs and later see him in a jail cell. A boy and a girl shout and fight with one another and the boy twists the girl's arm.
 We see two men shout and throw a flaming bottle at a house and moments later we see the house burned to the ground; an older man later examines the remains.
 A man asks his brother why he had not come to visit when their mother was dying, saying she would ask about the brother and she would become violent. A man asks his brother why he came to their father's funeral, but not their mother's. A woman tells a man (who she does not realize is her husband since he's posing as her husband's identical twin), that her husband had died one month previously and that she had cremated the body. A man tells his identical twin brother that a mutual friend of theirs had died of cancer. A man tells his brother that he has cancer. A man reads a newspaper headline stating, "Another Kidnapping." A woman dramatically tells a man and a woman that someone would "kill her" if they found out she allowed them to see an infant. An older man jokingly knocks a bottle from a man's hand, and then insults the man.
 A man wearing a beekeeper's suit begins to struggle after a bee gets into the suit; we see him pull at the mask and we later see the man with bee sting welts on his hands. A man examines a cut on a young woman's palm; we see that it is healing, and the man advises her to clean the cut and alert him if it begins to feel hot.
 We see two men gutting a fish and a small amount of blood is visible on the table. We watch a man pluck the feathers off a bird that he shot. A man advises a teen girl that if a queen bee is not strong, a hive will die and we see the man squash a bee between his fingers. A man spits on his hand and shakes hands with another man as a bet.

A CAVEAT: We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and some of our early standards were not as stringent as they are now. We therefore need to revisit many older reviews, especially those written prior to 1998 or so; please keep this in mind if you're consulting a review from that period. While we plan to revisit and correct older reviews our resources are limited and it is a slow, time-consuming process.

INAPPROPRIATE ADS? We have little control over ads since we belong to ad agencies that serve ads automatically; a standing order should prevent provocative ads, but inappropriate ads do sneak in.
