Exciting thriller plenty of violence , suspense , sexual scenes , intrigue , crude language , delusions and plot twists . Despite being somewhat of a cinematic cliché, rarely has a feature been so aptly deserving of its description as a thriller film along with some elements from Noir cinema such as Femme Fatale appearance . It is a decent picture in which suspense is well developed from start to finish by means of some flashbacks , though crammed with abundant erotic scenes -in Softcore style- between Fanny Cottencon and Bruno Cremer . Interesting as well as twisted screenplay from the same director , he adapted the script based on a novel by Andreu Martín titled "Prótesis" filled with violence , emotion , intrigue , turns and profanities , as almost every dialog revolves around sexual relations . This is a film in which the roles are unpleasant and unfriendly , and when you start making your own conclusions on the topic, suddenly something happens and you instantly change the course of your thoughts . Passable performance by protagonist duo as Fanny Cottencon as a sexy thief with a shady past and whose behavior defying any reasoning . Nice acting by Bruno Cremer as rotten as well as grumpy policeman who mistreats Fanny and his family . Bruno has appeared in dozens of films, including The 317th Platoon, Is Paris Burning?, William Friedkin's Sorcerer and Bertrand Blier's Ménage . Cremer also appeared in over fifty television movies as the popular Commissaire Jules Maigret . Fine support cast such as Paco Algora , Berta Cabré , Ian Sera ,Marta Padovan and Paca Gabaldón . Colorful cinematography by Juan Amoros , filmed on location in Barcelona , showing efficiently slums , barrios and squares . I think it's an acceptable thriller and it sure kept me interested till the very amazing end . This heist movie packs thrills , emotion , violent scenes , extraordinary performances and exciting finale . Recommended to the suspense , Noir Film and thriller buffs .
