A Coruña rainy weather, a sudden happening, a sound story.
5 November 2010 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

The premise of this film is a fascinating one. How good is "a good man" (The film title), how bad is a bad man? Where is the thin line that divides an individual to make him either a criminal or a decent citizen?

Can anyone of us, according to the circumstances, kill a person? Will we take it naturally and continue with our daily routines or, on the contrary, it will make us to become tortured and restless with the thought of it?

I enjoyed this movie so much you don't have an idea!

The performances are superb, the close-close ups scrutinize the characters features searching for their deepest thoughts, their doubts, fears, ambitions.

There was only one scene that I found Deus ex Machina, and it happens at the police department, when an interrogated witness leaves the inspector's office and around a partition she bumps against a secretary carrying a pile of documents and photos.

When you see it you too will notice the extraordinary consequence of this encounter, too recherché to fit comfortably as a solution for that particular clue.

One feels embarrassed for the script writer that used such a cheap, worn out trick when the rest of the film is so good.

I highly recommend this picture. Very entertaining, very refined and for somebody that likes the Spanish language, the actors accents are splendid and so civilized...

Next to a Hollywood production with this type of script, this film is a masterpiece.
