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

Unique thrilling thriller
24 August 2017 | by (London) – See all my reviews

You will remember the faces of the characters/actors of this film for a long time. The character work is the best thing about this film and that the script hasn't written them as black or white but black and white. Only the killer is somewhat one sided. An atmospheric and gripping story with very interesting actors!
