Convoluted story of false identity, treason and murder.
15 May 2005 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

It was an odd choice to cast Marisol in this but perhaps that is how it got made anyway. With Marisol's desire for more adult non-singing roles and Bardem's track record, I am sure most producers would have risked it.

The screenplay obviously needed help and it feels like it was being written as they went along. British star Murray Head (Sunday, Bloody Sunday) is badly dubbed and at times I lost the plot altogether. Seeing Marisol in such an unexpected role was fun.

This is a hard to find video so the film must usually be caught on Spanish TV.
