Great first movie for a great director

This movie was the first one from Carlos Vermut. Recorded with only 25,000 euros don't have anything to envied with a movie wiht much more budget. Aparently the movie is about short stories with a line in common: A superhero call Diamond flash. Aparently this movie is mainly acted by women, so someone could think it's a movie about girl power. But this movie is everything except a typical superhero movie or a "metoo" movement movie. It's about people and wickedness in many different environments. And because all this environments are close for a normal society person (you can recognise most of the sets if you have ever walk around Madrid). That makes this movie even more dark.

Some of this ideas were later development in his second movie. "Magical girl" Probably more polished movie, but in here the observer could find the sprout for that great movie.
