Essential film of Spanish Noir Cinema
31 May 2013 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

It's a great sequel that serves as the culmination of the history of the character "German Areta", "El Crack" 1981. Both involve the "raid" on the black film by Spanish director, is a genre in which there are few films of this level, but Garci always expressed his admiration.

The "adventure" in the "Noir Cinema" of Garci involves changing characters by actors who used to other roles. As a "Bogart" we have a unique gorgeous Alfredo Landa acting in his character as cold type, shrewd and calculating.

Just as with "The Godfather, Part II", this film can also say that this up to the first part. It's a great Spanish Noir film. It's a film that captures and engages the viewer from beginning to end. Garci presents us with wonderful planes, night views, sunsets and sunrises over Madrid.

Alfredo Landa's interpretation is marvelous along with Joseph Bódalo and Miguel Rellán. An original plot and style surprise Chandler novels. We emphasize that ending with the plane of the aircraft. Definitely it's a masterpiece of our Noir Cinema, absolutely essential.
