Storyline

During the scorching summer of 2011 in bustling central Madrid and in the background of the imminent Papal visit, the metropolis pulsates with anticipation while thousands of pilgrims flock to the capital. However, in the bowels of the city, there is something sinister going on, as it seems that a string of sex-related homicides have been taking place under the nose of the police, nurturing a scandal that no one wants to break out. Under those circumstances, two investigators, the brilliant, yet eccentric Luis Velarde and the hot-headed loose cannon Javier Alfaro must track down the sadistic and methodical serial killer in total secrecy. But to catch a killer, one must first keep his own demons at bay. Written by Nick Riganas

An awkward couple of policemen hunt a serial killer in Madrid.
17 September 2017 | by AlexMedarioSee all my reviews

It's so good to watch a good film with policemen, some thriller and of course the bad guys, but this time it's in an European city, Madrid. Quite better than LA, NY or the rest of exhausted American cities.

The couple of actors are superb, especially the tough Alfaro, played by Roberto Álamo. Antonio de la Torre plays the partner, Velarde, a strange character that makes the game more interesting.

Of course the movie is full of topics or even scenes that remind some other similar films, but it's difficult to do otherwise, because the subject has been repeatedly used as script.

There are huge differences but it come to my mind a few times the film Seven. I know that this film is in all the list about the greatest films, but for this reason it's normal that all films about the subject drink a bit from it.
