An exhilarating, claustrophobic and off-the-wall thriller by the Spanish master of genre cinema, Álex de la Iglesia, tinged with a hefty dose of dark humour. 

It’s a morning just like any other in one of Madrid’s popular squares. A few passers-by are sitting in a bar having a quick breakfast while others enjoy their first drink of the day. Suddenly, one of the customers is shot in the head and killed while leaving the bar. Another customer rushes to his aid but he too is fatally wounded and collapses on the street. Why are there suddenly no people in the square in front of the bar? Is there a sniper on one of the adjoining roofs? Or could the perpetrator be in the bar itself? Anyone here could be the murderer and anyone their next victim.

“The other day I read something in the news that showed me the missing link between humans and monkeys: a group of smiling people on a beach taking selfies with a dolphin... until they killed the dolphin. That’s what people are like. We don’t see the big picture, and by taking selfies with a dolphin we end up killing it. We do the same thing with people – if I can save myself, everyone else can just go jump.” (Álex de la Iglesia)

Álex de la Iglesia
Born in Bilbao, Spain, in 1965. His talents were first discovered by Pedro Almodóvar, who produced his debut feature film, Mutant Action. Winner of several prestigious cinematic awards, his filmography ranges across a gamut of twenty films.
