The Paramedic review – a thriller with an intense start that withers in the second half

Published

on

Summary

And thus The Paramedic is about a lonely man with a deadly obsession that fails to go further than the limited potential of the plot.

This review of Netflix film The Paramedic contains zero spoilers. The Spanish thriller came out on the platform on September 16, 2020.


The Paramedic works to an extent because the director Carles Torras encouraged the lead character Ángel (played by Mario Casas) to be detestably intense from the first scene. The character did not muster any respect for his partner with his underlying tones and his implied paranoid behaviour. The premise follows Ángel as he faces a new reality in a wheelchair after an unfortunate accident. When the woman that he claims to love leaves him, he develops a deadly obsession and puts in plans for a revenge plot.

The Netflix film spends plenty of time molding their relationship into a neat case study in the first half — his partner Vane is played by Déborah François and she gives a thorough performance ensuring that her mannerisms speak volumes. The odd glance, twitch and her consuming eyes tell a story more than Ángel’s intense ways — it’s a scenario where a character is too afraid to be alone and the partner can smell it — Vane cannot find an excuse to leave.

It’s flagrantly evident why the director wanted to surface Ángel’s sinister traits before he ended up in a wheelchair — he wanted an angle that Ángel did not become bitter and evil due to his new circumstances, but that the growing darkness was inside him all along — whether this will be accepted as part of the plot remains to be seen. The second half of the film explores Ángel’s revenge plot. And that’s where Netflix’s The Paramedic becomes rather average because the mystery between the couple that held the momentum is suddenly lost. The story becomes an angry, strange man finding ways to keep his ex-partner in his life — a plot we’ve seen plenty of times.

And of course, the reason it’s called The Paramedic is that the writers needed to find a reason why he had medical supplies at hand. The film notably shows the character has a knack for stealing at the start.

And thus The Paramedic is about a lonely man with a deadly obsession that fails to go further than the potential of the plot.

Moving on! Demi Lovato shared a message about “healing” and feeling “misunderstood” following her split and broken engagement from fiancé Max Ehrich

“I knew I was healing when …” the “Cool for the Summer” singer, 28, posted on her Instagram Story during the early hours on Monday, September 28. The list included items like she “enjoyed alone time,” “set boundaries” and “was OK with being misunderstood.”

In Touch confirmed on September 24 the “Sorry Not Sorry” singer and Young and the Restless actor, 29, called it quits after six months of dating. The two began their romance in late March, and Max got down on one knee and proposed in July. 

The celebrity couple began feeling the “pressure” surrounding their whirlwind romance and impending nuptials, an insider exclusively told In Touch prior to their breakup. The soap star began “feeling overwhelmed” and “smothered” by Demi leading up to their split, the insider noted. “He needs his space. It’s no secret.” 

As for the former Disney kid, she had “a lot riding” on their engagement and the “pressure seemed to be getting to her.” Although the famous pair had “love” for each other, the weight of their commitment began “backfiring.”

Max publicly spoke out about their uncoupling on September 26. “Imagine finding out to the [sic] status of your relationship through a tabloid while your [sic] in the middle of filming a biopic movie about a pastor in a Christian church whose intention of the film is to help people. God bless [dove emoji],” the actor wrote on his Instagram Story. 

News of their split came just one week after Demi shut down allegedly fake tweets from Max that showed him gushing over Selena Gomez. The resurfaced social media posts, which the “Confident” singer claimed were edited, showed her former beau comparing her to the Wizards of Waverly Place actress, including writing that Selena was “prettier” than Demi.

“It’s really sad when people FAKE images to put women against each other. If women have conflict, that’s between them, NOT YOU,” Demi wrote on September 13 to defend the Under the Dome actor. She added there are “more important” things to focus on in 2020.

It looks like Demi is ready to start this new chapter solo.

Poturalski and Mary, 68, have been married for eight years and share a 7-year-old son, but are reportedly in an “open” relationship.
