Good and entertaining film of Noir cinema.
10 February 2013 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

Having been on the verge of getting a title boxing many times, "Daniel" (Miguel Angel Silvestre), a young boxer, is defeated again. After the failure, commits a robbery and is jailed. "Guillermo" (Jose Coronado), a self-destructive police and tormented by his latent homosexuality, blackmails "Daniel" offering freedom in return for committing a murder within the prison. After running the task, "Daniel" boxing again, but this time seeking to alleviate pain his guilt has become a more aggressive fighter. Remember the last conversation with the man he killed, in which he spoke of his wife, a whore in the club he ran, and decides to meet her.

We are in a good movie Noir Spanish film, which in recent years is giving some good works in this genre.

History does not miss a beat throughout the duration of the film, not as in other films in which the viewer is lost or becomes too heavy.

The interpretation of Silvestre much as it does a good role fighter tormented, as the role of Coronado makes a bad man job similar to "La Caja 507" 2002 (Enrique Urbizu), or "Lobo" 2004 (Miguel Courtois) where as always, with the best performance out of the movie.

The contributions of the supporting actors are also quite serious and acceptable, especially the amazing Belén López, The scenes and the soundtrack is very good. The dark and sinister scenes reminiscent of "Seven" 1995 (David Fincher), which gives a look of mystery, quite believable. The music helps a lot to it.
