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.

IMPROVING Spanish THRILLER FILMS
20 June 2004 | by ruvegSee all my reviews

An interesting thriller of Spanish atmosphere, where they are mixed the dark financial manipulations of certain economic groups with the thirst of justice - vengeance? of a normal man that is involved in it by chance. Good work of Antonio Resines who leaves their comic appearance to make a serious and austere role. Two purely casual facts and its apparent relationship among them becomes a line of investigation that takes us toward a prospective but not less interesting end. Something superficial as for the character that José Coronado plays - the "key of the action" something primitive in his decisions with good performance touches in brief appearances - Sancho Gracia - give a good inflection point to the film keeping the lines of interest until the end. I think Spanish cinema has begun to reach an improvement in its thrilling genre productions . This movie is a sample.
