| PERHAPS THE BEST POLITICAL THRILLER OF 2018
In Spanish state, a group of government functionaries enjoy a high life style thanks to the corruption of the system. Suddenly an important one gets caught. The party decides to sacrifice a less important member; but the guy decides to fight back. Nothing easy because he is not only outnumbered but most of his allegiances are betraying him. The main difference of this European movie is that the hero (well, the corrupt hero) is nothing like Rambo so he must uses his eloquence to manipulate things on a system were nobody can be trusted. Physical violence is very little in the film; but dialog and situations are really intense. There are some claustrophobic moments where you feel the main character angst and desperation. Acting is superb Antonio de la Torre is able to even make likable a really repulsive person; the rest of the cast follow through with characters that far worse than the main one. If you see the previous Sorogoyen movie "May God Save Us / Que dios nos perdone" is easy to understand his stories are not easy and his endings are not Hollywood. The Realm/El Reino is basically the same; however the last dialog between the protagonist and the reporter; reminds us that everybody is corrupted one way or another and there are no real heroes here.

In brief; see it without any doubt
