Exciting and interesting drama/triller about a respected judge investigating a strange killing
11 September 2013 | by (Santander Spain) – See all my reviews

This is a highly suspenseful and cerebral thriller , filled with twists and turns . Eva (Leonor Watling) , a young judge with great future , is totally dedicated her job . Lone Eva usually goes jogging and his only relationship is her sister Marta (Adriana Ugarte) . One day is assigned to investigate a killing , a striptease dancer , as the main suspect is a powerful and wealthy man called Peña (Pedregal) , being detained and imprisoned by Eva . Later on , there appears a witness , the victim's boyfriend , a gigolo named Rocco (Miguel Angel Silvestre) . Eva then becomes involved into a sexual relation to Rocco.

The film contains intense drama , thrills , plot twists and , adding tense sequences especially in its final part in an unexpected denouement . Leonor Watling at her best , she steals the show as a professional judge who falls in love with fateful consequences . The picture relies heavily on the relationship between Judge/Leonor Watling and Gigolo/Miguel Angel Silvestre , containing a lot of sexual scenes among them . In spite of it , the movie results to be better than average , being surprisingly good and compellingly realized . The original as well as entertaining idea about a rigid judge becomes involved into a dark passion is overspread throughout the movie , but not completely satisfactory , including conventional pitfalls . The motion picture is pretty well , although sometimes stagy and packs some turns ; however is entertaining for continuous suspense . Colorful and appropriate cinematography , it is finely photographed by cameraman David Omedes , filmed in Valencia and Madrid . Suspenseful as well as stirring musical score by Arnau Bataller . The motion picture was professionally directed by Mariano Barroso . He has directed various films with similar players and with moderated success such as ¨My soul brother¨ at his best , ¨Extasis¨ with Javier Bardem , ¨Kasbah¨ with Ernest Alterio and Jose Sancho and ¨Ants in mouth¨ with Eduard Fernandez . Rating : 6,5 . The movie will appeal to Leonor Watling and Miguel Angel Silvestre fans . It's an entertaining film but some moments being slow moving .
