Juan José Ballesta,
The story of a man who fooled an entire country. A tale of cheats and impostors, taking its inspiration from true facts and from one of the most intriguing characters of recent decades: the spy Francisco Paesa.

A look at a Spanish task-force police team that seems to have an almost free hand at ridding the town of Sevilla from it's drug dealers/users.
It's like having a look over the shoulder of these cops in their professional as well as personal lives. The two main protagonists, Angel en Rafael both go through very interesting character developments that I won't reveal, but the great thing here is that nothing ever becomes predictable. Check it out, you'll see what I mean. It's all pretty gloomy but at the same time utterly fascinating. Reminded me a lot of "Tropa de Elite"
I loved it and in particular loved those colourful characters; the snitches, the whores, the dealers and the cops. Great performances all round. 7/10
