Storyline

"La Voz de su Amo" is a contemporary film noire set in Bilbao in 1980, an environment marked by corruption and terrorism. The lead character is Charlie, a taciturn individual in his thirties. He works as the trusted man of Mr. Oliveira, an entrepreneur of Portuguese origin who engages in dark businesses. Alarmed by a series of threats and attempts on people's lives, Oliveira decides to put his teenage daughter, Marta, under Charlie's protection. From that moment on, everything becomes complicated: love appears without prior warning, violence generates more violence, friends turn out not to be what they seemed to be and money changes hands.

His master's voice
29 May 2004 | by See all my reviews

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.
