A high-risk shot at a screen adaptation of a novel within a novel, The Motive is entertaining and buzzes with fun ideas, but as an involving drama, it never gets past the first chapter.

Watching The Motive is akin to hearing an artist expound at length on the tedious specifics of their process, a feeling made all the more wearying by the blinkered nature of said approach.

Cuena's neutral tone does little to maximize the black comedy or suspense in the story, making for a film with a great hook that plays as just a mildly outré divertissement.

The Motive is a fascinating film about an average and bland man. The story Alvaro is writing may be exciting, but he's still observing the exciting life of others rather than experiencing it himself.

Cuenta's command of visuals continues to impress ... But he never quite settles in term of tone and his approach to the Álvaro is too clinical.

The Motive goes from a deeply Spanish comedy... to a kind of thriller of intrigue that does not lose sight of its playful dimension. [Full review in Spanish]
