Terrific thriller with top-notch performances
29 December 2001 | by (Reus, Spain) – See all my reviews

TODO POR LA PASTA is a dark, brutal and highly enjoyable crime movie really surprising if you consider what had been done until then with the crime genre in spanish cinema (some semi-amateurish attempts like PERROS CALLEJEROS).

It's a successful mix between the usual american thrillers like the DIRTY HARRY films and something purely spanish that can be seen in some of the characters and performances: the blind man (Ramón Barea), the old and insane man (Luis Ciges) or the weird family of the evil cop (Pepo Oliva): a genuine sense of humor that enriches the film and gives it originality.

Maria Barranco shines in the lead role and there's also a wonderful job from the supporting characters, from Kiti Manver (who won a well-deserved Goya award for her performance) to Pilar Bardem (Javier's mother) and more brief appearances of Saturnino García or Caco Senante in addition of those mentioned above (Barea, Ciges and Oliva).

However, is the brutal cop portrayed wonderfully by Antonio Resines who steals the show. If there's still a doubt that Resines is one of the greatest spanish actors working today, well, here's the proof...
