It’s a morning just like any other on one of Madrid’s popular squares. Suddenly, one of the customers in the bar is shot in the head. Another customer rushes to his aid, but he too is fatally wounded. Horrified, everyone tries to make sense of the incomprehensible events…


Álex de la IGLESIA is a Spanish film director, screenwriter, producer and former comic book artist born in 1965. His films combine grotesque and dark elements such as death and murder: most of his work is considered dark comedies but are also often considered to have horror and/or drama elements. All his films, with the exceptions of [The Last Circus] (2010) and [As Luck Would Have It ](2011), were written together with Jorge Guerricaechevarría.
