I caught up with this film on cable. Director Emilio Martinez Lazaro brings this tale of revenge and conflict between ETA, the Spanish Basque separatist movement in its war against those people who they deem are exploiting the people in the region.
At the center of the story is a corrupt Portuguese business man, who takes his body guard under his wing, but never reveal what really is behind his motives. He even entrusts his daughter, the lovely Marta to stay away from the impending danger, to Charli.
The Spanish film industry favors this type of film, which will confuse anyone that is not from that country. The casual viewer will feel a bit out of touch watching the movie because of the politics and the tactics employed.
Joaquim de Almeida, Eduard Fernandez, Silvia Abascal and Imanol Arias are the principals in a film that asks a lot of questions that are unanswered by its director.
