It's a good movie to rescue of the Spanish Cinema of the nineties.
29 October 2015 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

The director of a bank "Simon" (Antonio Valero) disappears after committing a big scam. Since then his wife "Juana" (Veronica Forqué) will be besieged and pressed upon to restore the good name of the bank and everything returns to normal.

"Amor Propio" proposes a plot that naked greed and selfishness in this world and still more in the financial / banking jungle

Mario Camus, dear great Spanish film director emerged from the best literature written in Spanish is also a cultivated man of letters in the written word. His visual language film and literary narrative know where feelings and beliefs take shape. Like reading, cinema Camus expressed paused, with sturdy slowness and depth planes loaded with expressiveness and symbolism to be observed...

Although the plot of the story is complex, this is an interesting and high movie. Camus achieves good movie plot, without the slightest fuss, just across a remarkable script and the warm and serene look of Veronica I invaded, great performances and an extraordinary cast, for a truly remarkable for simple and transparent film. It is a film to rescue of the Spanish cinema of the nineties, which as literature and life has its generations.
