| Beautifully directed TV-movie
Based on well-known true events, "Jugar a matar" is a remarkably well-directed TV-movie. Instead of filming it as an episode of any cop-themed TV-series (call it "CSI" or "El Comisario"), Isidro Ortiz has made an interesting work with framing and lighting, thus giving "Jugar a matar" a different and more cinematic air.

Lucía Jiménez is quite convincing as a member of the CSI team investigating the case, and so is Andoni Gracia as her new boss. I really didn't buy the relationship between Jiménez's character and the cop in charge of the investigation, played by Juan Fernández. They had no chemistry whatsoever, and I don't find the necessity of inserting a love story in the crime investigation plot.

Nevertheless, I found "Jugar a matar" really engaging, and very well made for a TV-movie.
