Thriller, 2001, 100 Min, 35mm
Police officer Maria Delgado arrives in Seville during Holy Week. She is fleeing her past, her new colleagues don’t approve of her and now she is confronted with a very bizarre double murder. Just as she teams up with her partners, the shy Torillo and the somewhat macho Quemade, a third, brutal murder is discovered – it is beginning to look like the work of a serial killer.
The case offers no clues – until an old man relates a gruesome story that took place during the Spanish Civil War in place called ‘La Soledad’. Slowly but surely the whole horrendous story comes to light.
The investigation team enters into a cat-and-mouse game with a sick but brilliant killer whilst simultaneously unearthing a past that someone is very desperate to conceal. As they close in on the truth their own lives become endangered. One thing is certain: a lot more blood is bound to flow during Holy Week.
