Trivia

Imanol Uribe came up with the final scene in the shooting. Juan Diego Botto was already done with the movie, so he had to get into character again. According to Uribe, Botto did so reluctantly because of the psychotic aspect of his character. See more »

Quotes

Asesino: The psychiatrists say I knew what I was doing. But I don't care, I have no reason to lie anymore.Because I didn't kill her. My hands did, but I didn't. Satan took over my will. Now I can remember what my hands did without suffering. I can look at them without shame. My spirit is in peace, the Angel of the Lord has brought me the mercy of sleep. The Bible's for you.
Inspector: How old are you?
Asesino: 22, and you?
Inspector: You'll be out in your thirties. And you'll do it again. Unless your God wants someone to kill you ...

Satisfactory conversion from the book
28 September 2002 | by Keith F. HatcherSee all my reviews

Based on a novel by the well-known writer Antonio Muñoz-Molina (see also Beltenebros, 1991), but obviously the filmed version lacked rather a lot of the psychological and philosophical content of the book. However, Imanol Uribe has basically done a good job as he captures the tense atmosphere of the novel without indulging overly in any of his quirkishness; he tells the story straight and gives excellent characterization in the most part.

Adriana Ozores is not too convincing much of the time, though Miguel Ángel Solá is fine as the police inspector. Both are overshadowed by a good reading by Juan Diego Botto of his rôle of murderer: indeed there are moments in which he is exceptional. Apart from that it was indeed nice to see Chete Lera and María Galiana in their secondary rôles, and Charo López positively makes the screen vibrate with her small part but immense playing of her also secondary rôle as 'Carmen'. I can only suppose it was not some kind of joke casting Fernando Fernán Gómez as a priest, but he is of course superb. Not shown on IMDb is the young Noelia Ortega who plays the part of a girl who survives a murder attempt: she plays her part as an eleven year old quite well.

In this novel, as well as in others, Muñoz Molina sought to explore the feelings and sentiments of his murderer so as to bring out the whys and wherefores of his psychotic behaviour. In this we can say that Elvira Lindo has done a good job with her script, Uribe handled the matter reasonably well, and full marks must go to Botto for his interesting playing.
