Mystery thriller set in the Island of the Gomera with plenty of twists , turns and a suspenseful finale
27 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

Based on a novel by Lorenzo Silva and the cast is pretty good , Andrés M. Koppel wrote the interesting screenplay and directed . The Mist and the Maiden (La Niebla Y la Doncella) dealing with three Investigators are sent to an island to revive an investigation, discovering new clues about a terrible crime . As the corpse of a young man appears in a forest on the island of La Gomera , Canary Islands . Being accused a high-powered but suspicious authority , Padilla (Fernando Navas) , who attempts to prove his innocence . After that , the case closes with the accusation to the local politician who is exonerated in the later judgment . Three years later , Sergeant Bevilaqua (Quim Gutiérrez) and his assistant , Corporal Chamorro , (Aura Garrido) , are sent to the island to revive the mysterious case . Corporal Ruth Anglada (Verónica Echegui) accompanies them , the last one who saw the young man alive . But events are about to get even worse .

¨Mist and the maiden¨, or ¨La Niebla Y la Doncella¨ is a top-notch thriller about a twisted mystery of a young man whose beheaded corpse is found in a forest located "on the island of La Gomera¨ . This killing is just the starting point for three Guardias Civiles have come to Gomera and then things go awry . This thriller packs mysteries , emotional thrills , action and suspense . The original as well entertaining premise is overspread across the movie adding some brief conventional pitfalls . This is a highly mysterious and cerebral thriller , filled with plot twists , including an unexpected denouement in its final part . Hitchcock style psychological mystery , being surprisingly good and competently directed , though it has some flaws and gaps . The picture is pretty well , though sometimes fails and it has a lot of turns . However , being entertaining for its continuous suspense , but slow-moving , too . The starring cast is frankly well , Quim Gutiérrez stars as Sergeant Bevilaqua , with Aura Garrido as Corporal Chamorro and Verónica Echegui as Corporal Anglada . And excellent support cast as Sanny van Heteren as a revengeful mother seeking justice , Fernando Navas who stands accused of murdering but is exonerated in the later judgment and special mention for Roberto Alamo as astute and suspicious lieutenant and Mariam Alvarez as his wife .

Based on a novel by Lorenzo Silva whose Guardias Civiles' characters were previously rendered in El Alquimista Impaciente . Lorenzo is a fine screen-player and writer whose novels and writings have been adapted in followings TV and movie pictures : 2008 La Reina Sin Espejo , 2009 Un Asunto Conyugal , 20-N: Los Ultimos Días De Franco , 2008 Rif 1921 Una Historia Olvidada and the successful : 2003 La Flaqueza Del Bolchevique . The film was compellingly produced by Mariela Besuievsky , Mercedes Gamero , Gerardo Herrero , Mikel Lejarza , Javier López Blanco , all of them have financed a great number of hits in the new Spanish cinema . This increasingly potent thriller displays an atmospheric but dark and foggy cinematography by Álvaro Gutiérrez . As well as stirring and suspenseful score by Adrian Foulkes and Lucio Godoy . This new film by Spanish writer/director Andrés M. Koppel was compelling and professionally directed . This is his film debut , Andrés previously wrote Noche De Reyes , Intacto and Zona Hostil .
