Everything that the film represents is summarized with the last sequence
21 October 2018 | by hectorhtrSee all my reviews

This is the third feature film by Rodrigo Sorogoyen, where we see little by little his evolution as one of the Spanish directors of the moment. This film takes enough of the previous one, May god forgive us, of which he maintains that constant tension. In turn, this visual style resembles Seven by David Fincher.

The political content makes a fictitious reference to the Spanish political situation. In particular, the corruption of the PP and the consequences of its discovery. The style is that of a hyper-nervous thriller with characters always on the edge of disaster. All this, after having become rich with all kinds of illegal methods. The evolution of the film is that of a flight in total descent, seeing the effects of the acts performed by each protagonist.

Everything that the film represents is summarized with the last sequence, a face to face between the protagonist, Alberto de la Torre, the corrupt politician and the television journalist who plays Barbara Lennie.
