Storyline

The daughter of bankmanager Modesto Pardo (played by Antonio Resines) dies in an forest fire while camping. 7 years later Pardo's bank gets robbed and robbers break open numerous safe deposit boxes. After the robbery, Pardo looks by mistake into one of the depositboxes and stumbles across some very strange documents that prove that his daughter's death is not an accident but murder. Pardo swears to take revenge on all those involved but doesn't know that papers belong to a very powerful mob boss who is looking for the papers and will stop at nothing to get them.

An OK Thriller
11 October 2004 | by khatcher-2See all my reviews

More or less in the 'cine noir' category, Urbizu sets us up with a refreshing thriller, almost as if he wanted to cock a snoot at the specialists in this genre on the other side of the big puddle. Interesting, even original, story, with good interpretations by both Resines and Coronado, neither of whom have ever been favourite actors for me. However here their playing is convincing and maintains tension throughout. Very definitely a 'masculine' film, as the ladies are very much relegated to minor roles. A very beautiful, exquisite Dafne Fernández (Goya en Burdeos) disappears rather promptly, and the equally adorable Goya Toledo was given a disappointingly secondary part to play. Be that as it may, the story holds interest, brings out all that charming world of corruption and mafias on Spain's 'Casta del Sol' as well as other deviations in today's world - deliberate forest fires, wife-beating............

Certainly worth a watch if you find this one on TV or on DVD; but do not expect an easy-to-swallow job, as the viewer's concentration has to play an active part - and there are not many films in this genre that manage that!

If you enjoy this film you might well like '99.9' (1997) (qv).
