An extraordinary and exciting Spanish Noir film
10 January 2014 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

José María Sánchez Navarrete is a post office that was living beyond his means planned, along with his lover Jose Donday , nicknamed "Pildorita " for his drug addiction, one of the most botched robbery in history. They intended to rob the wagon Mail Express Train Andalusia, because it is carrying, besides the extraordinary post, numerous currencies and pay employees in different factories and businesses. Honorio Sánchez Molina to assault and two known underworld criminals of the time, Antonio Teruel and Francisco Piqueras joined. But the plan was doomed to failure: the drug had no effect on the wine since "Pildorita" employees sleeping wagon. Teruel and Piqueras became nervous and "Pildorita" could think otherwise flee to order a taxi.

Year 1924 in Spain governs the dictatorship of General Primo de Rivera who is in the peak of its short existence presumes to impose law and order. This state of peace would break violently with a crime that has become part of the black history of Spain, the Crime Express Andalusia. The impact that the crime caused the 1924 Spanish society was immense. Immediately begin to move songs and legends and over time, a novel, several films and even today, one of the top attractions of Madrid Wax Museum.

With this event the splendid director Rovira Beleta, created an extraordinary noir film planning supported by a splendid and great art direction that transports us to Madrid first half of the twentieth. It is in this Madrid with "Corralas" , "Rastro", Street boiling, social differences and trains depart and arrive where Rovira Beleta , with the cadence of a locomotive that accelerates ramp up to a frantic pace, we delights in just eighty minutes with the story of a heist intended to tragedy. This is indicated by the pigeons taking flight in one of the first sequences of the film, common occurrences in the language of film director of "Los Tarantos" 1963. It is true that the script in this film has some major changes, but we are certainly likely at one of the films most estimable robberies yet, most forgotten in the history of Spanish cinema.
