At the center of a locked-room mystery is Adrián Doria (Mario Casas), a successful businessman who has been discovered in a hotel suite with the body of his lover. Charged with murder, he enlists top-notch witness preparation expert Virginia Goodman (Ana Wagener). As the clock ticks down to the start of Doria’s trial, Goodman’s relentless questioning of her client’s defense brings to light some troubling inconsistencies. With strong performances and plenty of plot twists, this superbly crafted thriller delivers on the promise of Paulo’s earlier THE BODY.


THE BODY
EL CUERPO
2012, Outsider Pictures, 125 min, Spain, Dir: Oriol Paulo

A heady mix of classic noir, blood-chilling horror and high suspense, THE BODY is a thriller following a detective (José Coronado) who searches for a corpse that has gone missing from a morgue. A Goya Award nominee for Best New Director, Paolo proves to be a master storyteller with this absorbing plot, which keeps viewers guessing about both the strange circumstances surrounding the victim’s death and the reasons her body has disappeared. “…the kind of breathless, relentless genre fare whose sole aim is to generate suspense, and it pretty much succeeds.” - Jonathan Holland, Variety. In Spanish with English subtitles.
