Synopsis

Genre maestro Álex de la Iglesia (Witching and Bitching SFF14) plays to his strengths in this darkest of dark comedies, firmly entrenched in the zeitgeist.

It’s a morning just like any other in one of Madrid’s popular squares. A few passers-by are sitting in a bar having a quick breakfast while others enjoy their first drink of the day. Suddenly, one of the customers is shot as he is leaving the bar. Another customer rushes to his aid but he too is fatally wounded. With the gunman threatening to liquidate anyone who leaves, the regulars try to determine the rationale behind their being targeted. Is the killer outside, or could the perpetrator be in the bar itself? Anyone here could be the murderer and anyone their next victim. Caught between blind terror and confidence, egotism and solidarity, they struggle to survive amidst outbursts of greed, hatred and helpfulness.

With its distinctive humour, ingenious characterisations and manic style, it’s 100 % pure Iglesia from the very first scene, as he trains his lens on a group of people in an extreme situation in order to highlight a society that has succumbed to fear. Playing in the Spanish Film Festival in Australia, 2017.
