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 moon made me do it. I get drunk on it and it makes me do strange things. My mother says it always affected me. I swear I didn't want to kill them.

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.
