The film is set in, and captures beautifully Madrid’s hot summer of 2011, when the Pope was about to visit and when the 15-M anti-austerity protest movement was being born in the city’s centre.
This was pulling the city in two opposing ideological
directions and creating one almighty security
headache. For much of its length the film mixes up
police procedural, social grit, character study,
black humor and Catholicism into a taut and
distinctive whole which first focuses on the
investigation and later enters the world of a killer.
One lengthy set-piece had been hailed as one of
the finest suspenseful sequences to have ever been
filmed in Madrid.
Premiere in collaboration with TOURESPAÑA.
