Impressive display means for a good film by Daniel Monzón Two alternating stories that end up being the same and characters that are related to internal conflicts and ambitions. It's a splendid Tosar and great Jesús Castro's film, (with his good Cadiz accent). Both stories.
Although lasts more than two hours film is very well made, has action scenes at sea worthy (especially nocturnal pursuit) of a production USA but without effects. I came to think that the problem in the Strait of Gibraltar actually happens as in the film, where people like the protagonist do the dirty work of dark and powerful machinery.
This is an excellent Spanish thriller that even without the impact that supposed "Celda 211" is one of the best recent bets, which again shows that in Spain great genre film becomes,. And that predict that, along with fellow thriller "The minimum island" of Alberto Rodríguez, one of the best recent work in Spanish cinema.
The soundtrack is very good, fits well with the scenes with care and good pace script. In short: we have a remarkable, funny movie in some scenes featuring a fine cast, script and story, highly recommended to see on the big screen.
