A gem to discover for murder movies fans.
5 August 2015 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

"Crimen De Doble Filo" is a thriller of high quality by a young director Borau already beginning to show its talent. The tape is very well run, with a good camera handling and a very accurate rate, which we are told police investigation conducted by inspectors of the Madrid police about a murder committed in the person of a tuner pianos, in his shop,

From here we have an interesting thriller that although in certain phases may seem predictable surprises with an effective spin dash, during which Borau filmed a quasi expressionist drawings that play with the viewer's perspective while attracting wide attention on the development of the plot. We must also mention the great staging and those magnificent scenes with the rain falling through the streets of downtown Madrid that serve to enhance the dark atmosphere and the realistic tone that has the story. Chapter deserves interpretations, good by the extraordinary protagonist and partner with regard to side

As a curiosity, we can see the beginning booths Book Fair 1964 in Paseo de Recoletos and many planes inside and adjacent streets Eslava Theatre, Arenal Street Madrid (now converted into the "Joy Eslava" nightclub). Among the actors we can see a young Juan Luis Galiardo wearing a toupee on the character of police photographer, José María Prada as "Sixto" the tailor who lives next door and who knows more than he appears, Emilio Rodriguez as the neighbor "Juan Cuetar", Erasmo Pascual as the concierge and Eslava Theatre, Antonio Casas as "Ruiz," the commissioner leading the investigation.

The end result gives us a gem to discover for movies murder mystery fans.
