Inspectors Velarde and Alfaro must find what appears to be a serial killer. This hunt against the clock will make them realize something they'd never thought about: neither one of them is that different from the killer.
A hard-working single mother and wife of a getaway driver who is about to be released is approached by an unassuming and gentle man, completely unaware though of his inscrutable and utterly impelling motives.
Antonio de la Torre,
In the MARSHLAND a serial killer is on the loose. Two homicide detectives who appear to be poles apart must settle their differences and bring the murderer to justice before more young women lose their lives.
The story of a man who fooled an entire country. A tale of cheats and impostors, taking its inspiration from true facts and from one of the most intriguing characters of recent decades: the spy Francisco Paesa.
Miquel García Borda
In bustling downtown Madrid, a loud gunshot and two mysterious deaths trap a motley assortment of common urbanites in a decrepit central bar, while paranoia and suspicion force the terrified regulars to turn on each other.
During the scorching summer of 2011 in bustling central Madrid and in the background of the imminent Papal visit, the metropolis pulsates with anticipation while thousands of pilgrims flock to the capital. However, in the bowels of the city, there is something sinister going on, as it seems that a string of sex-related homicides have been taking place under the nose of the police, nurturing a scandal that no one wants to break out. Under those circumstances, two investigators, the brilliant, yet eccentric Luis Velarde and the hot-headed loose cannon Javier Alfaro must track down the sadistic and methodical serial killer in total secrecy. But to catch a killer, one must first keep his own demons at bay. Written by
This is one of those movies that surprise you. One of the highlights of the movie is Roberto Álamo's interpretation, who is able to express a lot of emotion with the help of his body language. A body language very violent but that manage to empathize easily with the audience. About Antonio de Torre I was expecting a little bit more because of his previous work, with some memorable and amazing characters.
The case we see the film (a real one, i think) and the place and time of the context of 15M (anti-austerity movement in Spain) is a plus for the movie. The script has some great dialogues and the story is very solid. I enjoyed the touch of humor that is implicit in the whole movie which helps to smooth the sordid police case. In conclusion, I went to the theater with no expectation about this movie and came out with a smile on my face, waiting with excitement for Rodrigo Sorogoyen future work.
