Pilar Miró's 'Beltenebros' is about an old spy who is hired to murder a double agent. However, as he has doubts, he pursues his own investigation to find out whether this double agent is worth the kill. In the process, he meets a femme fatale who he thinks could help her but this only further complicates things. But to be honest, I could care less. On paper this may sound a bit interesting albeit clichéd. 'Beltenebros' tries to ape the classic noire films with the added oozing of sex. However, Miró fails miserably. The movie itself has a B grade feel to it. The lighting is very poor. It's loaded with dialogues but none of them are even the least bit interesting. The acting mostly suffers because of the bad writing though the viewer does get the pleasure of watching Patsy Kensit strip again. The actor who plays the main villain is downright horrendous. Overall, ''Beltenebros' is a movie that's best left ignored.
