Excellent and violent thriller with awesome performances from Antonio De La Torre and Roberto Álamo
18 November 2016 | by (Santander Spain) – See all my reviews

May God Save Us (Que Dios Nos Perdone) is set in Madrid , summer 2011. Economic crisis . 15-m movement and 1.5 million pilgrims waiting for the Pope's arrival live side by side in a Madrid that's hotter and more chaotic than ever . In this context , is when two Police Inspectors , the stuttering Luis Velarde (Antonio De La Torre) and the violent Alfaro (Roberto Álamo) must find what appears to be a serial killer . This hunt against the clock will make them realize something they'd never thought about : neither one of them is that different from the killer . The two detectives pursue relentlessly the ruthless murderer and at whatever cost ; both of whom carry out a merciless chase in which take place ominous murders , treason , violence and vengeance .

This is an exciting , though downbeat , thriller in American style , here there are violent scenes , intrigue , frantic action , interesting characters and a lot of surprising twists and turns . The violence could be deemed excessive , especially when it occurs some grisly killings or unexpected outbursts . Rodrigo Sorogoyen's "May God Save Us" , results to be a grueling , grimy , melancholic thriller about two men who cannot control their actions ; it is a serial-killer procedural which unspools in a hot Madrid overrun by the pilgrims because of a visit by the pope . The movie is multi-layered in its themes of friendship , violence and institutionalized dereliction of duty . Its high profile cast and glossy production values create an above average film , being filled with suspense , frenetic action , thrills , violence , extreme tension and plot twists . Similarly to his previous film "Stockholm" , in Rodrigo Sorogoyen's "May God Save Us" , there is an study of male psychology but with a big step up in scale , budget and producing team . One backer , Tornasol Films , won an Academy Award for "The Secret in Their Eyes" , while another , Atresmedia Cinema Production , produced movies by Woody Allen . Nice and evocative production design , as we see some central zones from Madrid , downtown , Puerta Del Sol , Gran Via , but also its poorness and misery , and some others fine locations . Duo protagonist : Antonio De La Torre and Roberto Álamo are frankly top-notch , both of them give two unforgettable and top-drawer interpretations . Support cast is pretty well , such as : Luis Zahera , Mónica López , Andrés Gertrúdix , Alfonso Bassave and José Luis Garcia Pérez . Special mention for Javier Pereira who plays splendidly a surprising role . It packs colorful , sunny and atmospheric cinematography by Álex de Pablo . Thrilling and moving musical score by Olivier Arson . Álex De Pablo and Olivier Arson are expert craftsmen and Rodrigo Sorogoyen's regulars. ¨Que Dios Nos Perdone¨ making an appearance at the San Sebastian Film Festival , set to premiere in competition and achieving various awards . As prizes for homegrown talent , as screenwriter Isabel Peña and Rodrigo Sorogoyen won the Jury Prize for Best Screenplay for this tense Spanish film .

¨Que Dios Nos Perdone¨ ("May God Save Us") was stunningly directed by Rodrigo Sorogoyen . Rodrigo is a television veteran with literally hundreds of episodes worth of work to his credit , Sorogoyen is a relatively recent newcomer to the world of features with ¨May God Save Us standing¨ as just his third feature effort and with this great production it would appear he's navigating the transition just fine . Being his first picture the romantic comedy ¨8 Citas¨, or international title ¨8 dates¨ . This his third feature ¨Que Dios Nos Perdone¨ (May God Save Us) , following 2013's Goya-nominated "Stockholm" that also starred Javier Pereira in which Sorogoyen turned heads with his crowdfunded film about a one-night stand between a girl on the edge of a nervous breakdown and a guy who just wants to have sex and leave . ¨Que Dios Nos Perdone¨ rating : 7,5/10 . Better than average . Essential and indispensable watching . Worthwhile seeing .
