Description

José seems to be nothing more than a lonely man. Frequenting a local bar in one of Madrid’s working-class neighborhoods, he clearly is happy to be continually in the company of the bartender, Ana, who lives alone with her son. Ana has been waiting 8 years for the return of her son’s father, Curro, who is serving time in prison for a botched robbery.

Slowly, the two fall in love, and when Curro returns, he is decidedly displeased. When José offers Ana his country home to escape from her boyfriend’s wrath, neither Ana—nor Curro—realize that the mild-mannered José’s plans are just now starting to unfold.

Though taking place in modern day Castile, this directing debut of acclaimed Spanish actor Raúl Arévalo is a nod to the American Western. Winner of four Goya Awards, including Best Picture. “[A] grungy, beautifully compact thriller. “ — The Hollywood Reporter
