We are in a despotic future where the universe is being invaded by alien beings who, if you look at it, encourage suicide. That is why the survivors, not yet touched by these fatal looks, roam the streets blindfolded. The background is the same as bird box (2018), but this time it’s a road movie on the streets of Barcelona. Main character SebastianMario Casas), having lost his wife, turns out to be without his daughter Anna (Alejandra Howard) and now wanders the streets, getting lost, joining different groups.
Sebastian, however, belongs to a different category of people, however close to madness, who make others look at these creatures. He is a visionary and sees the “aliens” as a positive element, a way to reunite with his daughter.

Bird Box Differences: Between Religion and Violence
The key difference from the 2018 film is religion. IN Bird box Barcelona suicide is seen as a miraculous deliverance, and seeing creatures can transport us to a better world. Then you create gap between ordinary people who runs blindfolded, AND those prophets instead, they exalt their faith.
What makes this spin-off different from the original film is the desire to show us that in bird box it was hidden. The film with Sandra Bullock is much more focused on tension and there suspense set by “invisible”. IN Bird box Barcelonainstead, the focus is on more violent suicide scenes.
The problem, however, is that two directors and creators, Alex Pastor and David Pastor, have pieced together a number of elements from the aforementioned Last of us AND Quiet placepassing through the walking Dead or And the day has come Shyamalan. Result? A tangled mixture, a cauldron of things already seenwhich adds nothing new to the horror/sci-fi universe that has been especially explored in the last decade.
