Good film with great acting and script.
18 January 2020 | by SpacemanBobSee all my reviews

Nicely done dark, suspense filled Spanish revenge thriller. The writing is excellent, tension keeps building throughout to some effective twists at the climax. Luis Tosar is excellent as always. I enjoyed it, a couple of hours well spent.
