'One Buck' is the title of a disturbing plot that shares equal parts with the thriller and the sordid but deeply moral drama of a modern society broken in many pieces. It looks for desperate exits without finding them, except if they approach the hell, which is nothing other than the salvation of the soul.
Although 'One Buck' does not have an absolute artistic originality; that is to say: a full author has not yet been defined and dedicated to a world of his own, he does have many virtues and certain formal findings regarding the treatment of violence and, above all, of sex. There is narrative economy, austerity, and commitment to the pursuit of a film ethic to be honest with the viewer.
There is a visual force that unites with a careful work of casting, and a solid work with the actors that contributes to painting the whole range of pale colors that 'One Buck' has from beginning to end.
