Storyline

The identity of Petra's father has been hidden from her all her life. When her mother dies, Petra embarks on a quest which leads to Jaume, a celebrated artist and a powerful, ruthless man. As she searches for the truth, Petra meets Marisa, Jaume's wife, and their son Lucas. Gradually the stories of these characters intertwine in a spiral of malice, family secrets and violence, which will drive them all to the edge. But fate's cruel logic is derailed by a twist that opens a path to hope and redemption.

Great drama with some flaws as a suspense
27 May 2019 | by diegozaloSee all my reviews

The story told in "Petra" is fragmented in 7 chapters, but is not told lineally, so the first chapert we see is the second, then the third, the first, and so on. This is a "fresh" way to structure the narrative, with some potential regarding the building of suspense. However, at some point, it becomes useless in its functions, even making some chapters irrelevant in all its content (thats the power of an elipsis, so turning back in time is pointless unless we tell something new, something we lost in the way). Despite this caracteristics, the movie does his job in creating human drama, may be execesive sometimes, and senseless in the end, but powerful during the majority of the time.
