In Mexico, while having oral sex with four mobsters during a transaction, the alcoholic Spanish whore Gloria Duque (Victoria Abril) witnesses a shooting with the death of three gangsters. She holds a notebook with the record of illegal worldwide business and laundry of money of Mexican Cartel and she is deported back to Madrid. Gloria returns home after three years without notice, where her mother-in-law Julia (Pilar Bardem) takes care of her husband and former torero Juan that has been paralyzed for three years after a fatal accident in the arena and pays the mortgage of the apartment giving Spanish classes. She unsuccessfully tries to heist the money of one of the illegal business of the Mafia in a fur coat store in Madrid; then she tries to find a job, but without education and qualification, she prostitutes to raise some money. When the hit-men Eduardo (Federico Luppi) and his partner Oswaldo (Daniel Jimenez Cacho) are sent to Madrid to retrieve the notebook and execute Gloria, the middle-aged Eduardo is in crisis since his daughter is very sick and he believes God is punishing him and decides to not kill Gloria.
"Nadie Hablará de Nosotras Cuando Hayamos Muerto" is an awarded Spanish movie with an original and violent story about lost dreams, faith and reality of life. When I saw this movie for the first time in the 90's, I liked it more than this time. But Victoria Abril has an awesome performance and it is worthwhile watching this film. My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): "Ninguém Falará de Nós Quando Estivermos Mortos" ("Nobody Will Speak of Us When We Are Dead")
