ESP | 2016 | dir. Rodrigo Sorogoyen, with Antonio de la Torre, Roberto Álamo, Javier Pereira | UK premiere

Madrid, in Summer 2011. Alfaro and Velarde are two detectives with differing views over a series of rape and murder cases of elderly women. The more the investigation evolves, the more the violent Alfaro (Roberto Álamo) and the insecure Velarde (Antonio de la Torre) come closer to one another, and above all, to the truth. But more than a thriller, Rodrigo Sorogoyen’s second film after Stockholm, is a character study with hints of black humour that looks at social and religious tensions surrounding the Pope’s visit to Spain and the impending 15-M protests.
