This is one of the best Spanish movies I have seen for ages. The script is very good as well as the acting. It depicts the flaws of the judicial system and how the power can affect the progress of a case.

The movie proceeds very smoothly and the ending is very well crafted. Despite some errors in the script, the whole movie is very gripping. It is worth seeing more than once. Highly recommended.
