Through a portrait of this family, we witness the profound changes that have shaken Spanish society between the 1990s and the present, with the advent of the economic and political crises in the background.
Gonzalo de Castro,
Crematorio is the story of the Bertomeus, a family that has managed to amass a great fortune over several generations. Rubén Bertomeu left agricultural businesses behind to create a business network that has made him the richest and most powerful man in Misent. Only in the family environment Rubén Bertomeu finds opposition to his way of understanding progress.
This is where it all began. The new wave of Spanish tv shows has a lot to thank Crematorio. This is an amazing thriller about corruption, politics, mafia, capitalism and family. It depicts in a very real way the mechanisms on which the elite few try to get money and power regardless of morality and laws. The acting is very well done and the pace is also right on point. If you haven't yet watched Crematorio then I definitely recommend that you give it a try as it's a somewhat obscure title outside Spain and in my opinion it deserves more recognition.
