ESP | 2021 | dir. Oscar Aibar, with Ricardo Gómez, Pere Ponce, Joaquín Climent, Bruna Cusí, Vicky Luengo, Pol López | UK premiere

In 1982 a young hardened police officer and father moves with his family from Madrid to a small Mediterranean sea town where he is to replace an inspector who had been murdered. As he continues his work and discovers his new post, he starts discovering odd links between the mysterious circumstances of the inspector’s assassination, drugs and property speculation taking place in town. Based on real events, Oscar Aibar’s beautifully made thriller transports us to a seemingly idyllic retirement spot on the Mediterranean coast that plays host to wanted Nazi elders welcomed by the Franco Regime.
