Violent and exciting , but overlong thriller , with a phenomenal cast formed by great Spanish and Mexican actors
19 July 2017 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

This moving picture results to be a violent thriller with a top drawer star-studded cast and the support cast is equally awesome . However , this ¨Solo Quiero Caminar¨ failed at Spanish box office . Four women carry out a risked hold-up , they are : Aurora (Ariadna Gil) , her sister Ana (Elena Anaya) , Gloria (Victoria Abril) and Paloma (Pilar López De Ayala) . But Aurora is detained and incarcerated and her accomplices are outside . As Ana is an unfortunate whore who suffers distresses , that's why she accepts the marriage proposal of Felix (José María Yazpik) , a Mexican gangster . She moves with him to live in Mexico . Meanwhile , Gloria (Victoria Abril) receives a phone call from Mexico City ; it's Ana (Elena Anaya) who wants her friend to visit her . Her husband's business dealings are very profitable and she has been thinking ; there's work to be done . Aurora finishes her stretch in prison and Paloma (Pilar López Ayala) goes to collect her ; they have a flight to catch ; Madrid to Mexico ; Ana and Gloria are waiting . While , from her golden cage at a luxurious mansion , between the alcohol and her husband's beatings , the drunken Ana has planned a plot to rob her hubby and his gang led by Gabriel (Diego Luna) . As Four women scheme a risked strike against a bunch of Mexican drug traffickers to rob the safe box plenty of money from lucrative business . A double strike : cash and vengeance , and for this reason Ana has called on her friends' help . Together the four women are ready for their lucky strike!

The film deals with four women for whom so far life has not been easy , they star a dark story of vengeance and redemption , about heaven and hell . It stunned audiences and critics by its violence and by the dark story of revenge . Rightly enjoyable and fun-filled , milestone thriller which neatly combines intense drama , noisy action , grisly killings , sexual scenes , and twisted situations . The complex screenplay manages a lot of thrills from the audience and twisted elements that you never loose your attention from the film . Director Diaz Yanes being inspired by filmmakers like Martin Scorsese , Paul Schrader and Sam Peckinpah , whom pays tribute at some scenes from ¨Wild bunch¨. The only flaw I can find is that some of the story lines are overwhelmingly absurd and some character arcs end up being implausible . Some situations are loudly ridiculous and the heists proceed at a breakneck speed but sometimes falls flat .

This one turns out to be a flawless and nail-biting story full of twists and turns with a quartet of sensational protagonists . Pay attention as one duo of Spanish actors very well played by Elena Anaya and Pilar López Ayala alternate with the other pair of older players perfectly performed by Victoria Abril and Ariadna Gil . They are accompanied by two great Mexican actors : Diego Luna as Gabriel a killer who falls for Aurora and José María Yazpik as the dangerous and powerful Mexican drug trafficker Félix . I liked everyone in the excellent cast, and the male and female actors , they were all very attractive . As the magnificent cast is frankly top-notch , as the hit of the show is undoubtedly for Ariadna Gil as Aurora who is serving a prison sentence for a robbery that went wrong ; Elena Anaya as Ana , a prostitute who likes money and marries a mobster and subsequently designs a dangerous plan to hit back at husband's safe . Special mention for Victoria Abril who gives one of the best screen acting as Gloria Duque , who was the main character of the movie ¨Nadie Hablará De Nosotros Cuando Estés Muerto¨ . It packs colorful and adequate cinematography by Paco Femenia . Atmospheric and appropriate musical score by Javier Limón , full of Andalucian music and catching songs .

Agustin Diaz Yanes' return to top form , with an intelligent and engaging script which uses stirring situations to give us a good movie in fast pace , entertaining events , plot twists and that kept me entertained for the almost two hours and some of duration . Diaz Yanes is a fine craftsman , in 1990 he was assistant to director Pedro Almodovar in the shooting of "Atame" played by Spanish stars Antonio Banderas and Victoria Abril . Thanks to his reputation as screenwriter and the support of Victoria Abril he was able to set up his first film as director: "Nobody Will Speak of Us When We're Dead " that became the greatest hit of Spanish cinema at its release in 1995 and the Festival San Sebastian , including best actress to Victoria Abril and won 8 awards from the Spanish academy , Goyas ,including best film, best new director, and best actress . In spite of the success of his first movie, Diaz Yanes spent a few years trying to make a new picture, titled "Madrid Sur", a science-fiction movie set up in the capital of Spain, but was unable to make it due to financial problems . In 2001 , he was able to feature together the two most international Spanish actresses in his second movie "Sin Noticias De Dios" a fantastic comedy that received 11 nominations for the Spanish Academy awards , including best picture and director, but disappointed many of the fans of his first movie . In March 2006, he shot his third movie "Capitán Alatriste", an adaptation of Arturo Perez Reverte's best-seller , being successful at box office . And in post-production ¨Oro¨.
