2014, Spain, 105 minutes, (15)
Director – Alberto Rodríguez
Set in post Franco Andaluzia in the 1980’s two ideologically opposed detectives are forced to come together to find the perpetrator of a series of brutal attacks on a local teenager. Wonderful cinematography beautifully captures the murky corner of the country’s landscape skilfully mirroring the two detectives increasingly confusing investigation.

- A moody thriller with the added menace of post-Franco Spain – well supported by atmospheric music and lovely scenery.

- Adverts at the start of the film too loud! Ariel shots stunning. Plot/storyline all over the place. Unconvincingly police heavy!
- An excellent film – tightly scripted with real emotional intensity. Great cinematography – especially the aerial shots.
- Beautifully shot & haunting atmosphere created via music. Slow – too slow @ times for my taste. I have a sense that the Spanish audience would have picked up on things I missed.
- Thoroughly enjoyed this film. Beautiful cinematography! Tense plot that held attention throughout. Tension between 2 main characters held you in suspense.
- I fell asleep!
