Drama/thriller set in marvelous region of Andalucia dealing with an interminable and relentless pursuit
5 March 2018 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

Thrilling and emotive story about a long chase in which a con , his brother and niece are pursued by nasty delinquents . From start to finish this moving film contains drama , intrigue , thrills and shootouts . The movie is set in October of 2015 in Torremolinos, Málaga, Spain , it is starred by ¨Toro¨, (Mario Casas) who along with his two brothers Antonio (Hovik Keuchkerian) and López (Luis Tosar) , Toro's older sibling, scheme a robbing that goes awry . Then , Toro is sent in prison . Meantime , Romano , whose full name is Rafael Romano García (José Sacristán) , a faithful devotee of St. Lucy , realizes that López, is taking him money from his tourism business . Later on , Romano plans his vendetta against López . After that , Toro goes out of prison with the third grade and close to get the parole and he is working as a touristic driver , as he only wants to be free to marry his sweetheart Estrella (Ingrid García Jonsson) . Shortly after , there takes place an overlong road movie and a ruthless searching for they three escapees .

This exciting picture packs drama , emotion , action , violent events . This acceptable Spanish thriller has noisy action , intrigue and spectacular pursuits with car races , motorcycles and car crashes ,including bounds and leaps . Decent Spanish film with top-notch performances from main cast as well as secondary cast . This is an exciting film though relies heavily on the long pursuit . Mario Casas gives a passable acting as Toro , a previous con man must be back to his old habits to save his older brother and niece , and Jose Sacristán plays masterfully his ex boss and mentor . This is a thriller/drama that keeps you interested and expecting , including stirring and tragic events , as the premise is the following : Romano orders to abduct Toro's beloved niece , until this one get back the money and Toro ends attacking Romano's men and fleeing attempting to escape from his vendetta . Nice film , though has a few gaps , but anyway, its is compensated with the enjoyable performances from Mario Casas , Luis Tosar , Ingrid Jonsson , Keuchkerian and especially José Sacristán . This is the sort of story we've seen sometime before about unfortunate people escaping , while other people seek reckoning , but one that is always fun when executed with style and filmmaker Maillo certainly seems to have that .

It packs a colorful and briliant Cinematography by Arnau Valls Colomer . Moving and attractive musical score by Joe Crepúsculo . The motion picture was well directed by Kike Maillo , being filmed in his usual formal and stylistic scholarship , without leaving a trace the thought-provoking issues , in terms of dramatic and narrative excitement . Formerly , he deserved Goya to New Director , Kike Maillo , for his above average film titled ¨Eva¨ starred Daniel Brühl , Marta Etura , Alberto Amman , and he also directed shorts as Los perros de Pavlov , Las cabras de Freud and Cuánto mas allá del dinero .
