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 first.
Asesino: [...]

A new Spanish film
29 September 2000 | by dtelloSee all my reviews

Plenilunio is the third film that Imanol Uribe presents in San Sebastian film festival (the other two, "días contados" and "Bwana" won the first prize). In this mixture between drama and thriller, Uribe tries to get deep in the thoughts of an inspector, who tries to evade from the reality by his work. A case will absorb him ll the time, and he'll take it as personal. The characters are well exposed, but I think the final is quite precipitate. The character played by Juan Diego Botto is quite overacted, so the film doesn't fit very well at all.
