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 ...

absorbing, slow-moving crime drama
17 April 2004 | by RanchoTuVuSee all my reviews

A lonely police detective tracks down a crazed child murderer. The movie develops both characters equally well. Most of us would be drawn more to the depiction of the killer as an aberrant type. He is well played as a person lost in his own world, with no friends, selling fresh fish, and drinking alone, unable even to ask for the check at one point, due to his acute inwardness. Our detective discovers the nude body of a young girl in the woods, the work of our killer. Unlike other films of this kind, this one moves (or plods) along at an absorbing pace, giving time for the detective to develop a relationship with an equally lonely school teacher. At one point, while they are making love, the killer is busy with another victim.
