Spanish Film Festival
Genre maestro Álex de la Iglesia plays to his strengths in this darkest of dark comedies. 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.
