Director of The fury (1997) and One day in paradise (2003) returns to the cinema after more than ten years –his last work to date had been Fontana, the inner border (2009)– with a film made the old-fashioned way, with all the good and bad that this implies. This is a detective story that draws on the classic codes of the genre to narrate the tortuous journey of the ex-partner of an officer killed in action in less than suspicious circumstances.
The woman’s name is Silvia and she is interpreted with the usual presence of Sofía Gala Castiglione. Just after the funeral, she begins to feel the encouragement of a Senior Commissioner for Internal Affairs who is particularly interested in the subject. First indication that there is a cat locked up. The second is the appearance of the mysterious El Griego (Diego Velázquez), to whom that commissioner assigns as a mission to follow Silvia in the sun and in the shadows.
With these pieces on the board, a game of cat and mouse will begin to develop where everyone will show their true motivations, many of which can be assumed long before they occur, such as the inevitable mutual interest between Silvia and El griego.
With a very long technical invoice, natalia natalia –a term used in police jargon to refer to unidentified corpses- flows naturally, without pressure. The problem is that at times this question makes the story lack tension. If the result is positive, it is mainly due to Gala Castiglione and Velázquez, two performers capable of giving credibility and flesh to any character.
