Storyline

"La Voz de su Amo" is a contemporary film noire set in Bilbao in 1980, an environment marked by corruption and terrorism. The lead character is Charlie, a taciturn individual in his thirties. He works as the trusted man of Mr. Oliveira, an entrepreneur of Portuguese origin who engages in dark businesses. Alarmed by a series of threats and attempts on people's lives, Oliveira decides to put his teenage daughter, Marta, under Charlie's protection. From that moment on, everything becomes complicated: love appears without prior warning, violence generates more violence, friends turn out not to be what they seemed to be and money changes hands.

22 May 2001 | by queridoantonioSee all my reviews

The film is an amusing political thriller plus an impossible love story and it's worth it just for the fact that Eduard Fernández appears in it. His performance is simply astonishing. He plays the bodyguard of a Portuguese business man threatened by the terrorist band ETA. Everything complicates when he falls in love with the daughter of the business man. The movie loses much of its power as the story approaches its political side. It leads us to the common places that we're used to hear about the terrorism in the Basque Country. Nothing new. The author (although he seems to have good intentions) has lost a good chance to show another view.
