Synopsis

Winning Best Picture, Best New Director and Best Original Screenplay at the 2017 Goya Awards, The Fury of a Patient Man is Raúl Arévalo’s breathtaking directorial debut, a thriller about a man who has waited years to avenge a crime everyone else has forgotten.

Right from the beginning the film grips the audience, as we’re thrust into the aftermath of a jewelry store robbery that has left the owner comatose, a female sales clerk dead and the getaway driver in hot pursuit by police. Eight years later, the imprisoned driver, Curro (Luis Callejo) has become a rage-filled man. His girlfriend Ana (Ruth Díaz) lives alone with their son and spends her days bartending in Madrid, where an unassuming regular José (Antonio de la Torre, Cannibal, Volver), keeps her company.  Alone at night, however, José obsessively watches CCTV footage of the robbery. The simmering rage of both men finally boils over when Curro returns, expecting to restart his life but instead finding everything has changed.

With distinct echoes of the western genre, Arévalo’s precise and unrelenting revenge thriller is deservedly being marked as one of Spain’s best. Playing in the Spanish Film Festival in Australia, 2017.
