Storyline

First we hear then we see, in black and white, an argument between a man and woman. In a series of flashbacks in color, we see them meet, marry, and expect a child soon after. He turns abusive: he's Joaquín, an ad executive with a temper; she's Angela, a receptionist when they meet. The relationship unravels as each incident is more damaging. Angela's friend and confident is the wife of Joaquín's boss, so their problems spill into his work. He refuses to seek help. As he gets more threatening, the law does little. Is one or the other's death the only way this can end? And the flashbacks, where do they originate? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Domestic violence is perhaps more prevalent than one realizes. People caught in this situation often don't have the guts to confront reality and never leave the relationship soon enough to gain their sanity.

This film, directed by Javier Balaguer, was shown recently on cable and since it paired Sergi Lopez, perhaps Spain's best movie actor, and Paz Vega, got my attention.

The situation presented here is a study on how Joaquin, an up and coming advertising executive meets and falls in love with the lovely Angela. One can see from the beginning this relationship is doomed. Joaquin takes out all his frustrations on Angela and beats her up on many occasions until Angela walks out. The best part of the film is the surprising twist we witness at the end. We realize that justice works in mysterious ways, but it finally arrives and Angela is a winner.

Sergi Lopez is excellent as Joaquin. This actor has an intelligence that keeps amazing his fans from one film to next. Paz Vega is a beautiful, but resolute Angela. Elvira Minguez plays the pivotal role of Andrea, Angela's best friend, with conviction.
