Storyline

During the scorching summer of 2011 in bustling central Madrid and in the background of the imminent Papal visit, the metropolis pulsates with anticipation while thousands of pilgrims flock to the capital. However, in the bowels of the city, there is something sinister going on, as it seems that a string of sex-related homicides have been taking place under the nose of the police, nurturing a scandal that no one wants to break out. Under those circumstances, two investigators, the brilliant, yet eccentric Luis Velarde and the hot-headed loose cannon Javier Alfaro must track down the sadistic and methodical serial killer in total secrecy. But to catch a killer, one must first keep his own demons at bay. Written by Nick Riganas

Great thriller
20 June 2017 | by See all my reviews

Spain continues to deliver solid thrillers, as for example this last years La Isla Minima was a masterpiece of Spanish cinema.

This film has a dark atmosphere, the actors are great, especially Antonio de la Torre who is one of the best Spanish actors of this decade. The personal relationship of the two detectives is well written. The influence of Fincher's Seven in this film is crystal clear.

Don't miss this new classic of Spanish cinema!
