Storyline

Forty-eight million pesetas vanish from a bingo parlor. The thieves ignore that this amount had been set aside to pay two mercenaries to commit a crime organized by the police. When things start to get too hot, Azucena, the girlfriend of one of the thieves, decides to seize the money for herself. On the run she stumbles upon Verónica, the manager of a nursing home that wants a cut in exchange of helping her to evade the criminals and the cops. Mayhem and violence erupt when things come to a head in this fast-paced thriller set against the backdrop of the blood-soaked Basque country of the 90s.

One of the best Crime, investigation movies ever!
29 October 2003 | by kd4knSee all my reviews

A very entertaining film,with action,suspense and a hint of comedy.

This film has almost everything a crime movie has to offer.A perfect armed robbery,which follows in a double murder and betrayal.An investigation let loose on itself,police corruption at its highest,and a look at Bilbao`s lowest and most dangerous estates.

Its a Spanish delinquency movie of the 70`s and 80`s mixed with a modern American detectives movie,but maybe more realistic than the Americans!

Actor Antonio Resines in one of his best roles ever.

A must see.
