Storyline

Amaia Salazar, a police inspector in Pamplona, is directed by her superior to investigate a murder. The case concerns a teenage girl whose naked body was found at the side of a river close to Elizondo, Amaia's birth town, a rainy village surrounded by forests and mounts, full of local myths and ancient superstitions. Her marriage to James, an American sculptor, is falling apart due to her desire for a child, and despite wishing to never return to her family home, Amaia Salazar is forced to face the past and reconnect with her Aunt Engrasi and her sisters Flora and Rosaura. It seems that Amaia's instinct for criminal cases will be challenged, as more naked bodies of teenage girls are found in the forest. Trying to solve the case and discover the identity of the killer, Amaia must not only confront her own childhood trauma from the abuses of her mother, but also a growing suspicion that perhaps the killer is someone who is too close for comfort.

One of the Best serial killer -Mystery movies in Recent Times
19 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

First of all, The IMDb rating of 6.0 for this movie is complete nonsense . This is one of the best mystery movies in the serial killer genre I've seen . They have handled several complex subplots and back stories . This is not a slasher/ gore thriller ,so I guess people expecting blood splatters galore would be disappointed.

The main mystery and the central character have been treated excellently. There are however, a few loose ends and I felt the "monster/ guardian" subplot could have been skipped (or it's something which is part of cultural folklore which I didn't really understand). Overall ,an excellent mystery suspense movie with great atmosphere .
