In bustling downtown Madrid, a loud gunshot and two mysterious deaths trap a motley assortment of common urbanites in a decrepit central bar, while paranoia and suspicion force the terrified regulars to turn on each other.
Spanish thrillers are quite something. The moral code might feel off for many and there is quite the wrongness to a lot of things happening. But the moviemakers do not judge, they just tell. And sometimes that means as a viewer you don't know which direction the movie is going.
Also it is quite evil to make us feel sorry for a character who is not "good" by a long shot. Having said, the story is quite entertaining and our main character is intriguing. We get his struggle, but do we also get his decisions and actions? That is up to you to decide ... but the movie itself is really having you on the edge of your seat. Someone wrote the movie him anxiety ... without even reading the whole context, I totally get it. This is not easy and mostly not pleasant (in a traditional sense)
