This movie passed 2 of 3 tests (although dubious). It was entered by Velleda on 2015-07-25 22:56:36.



Velleda said:
1. Named woman: Rocio (mother of Trinidad), Trinidad, Marina, Angelita, Carmen, Estrella
2. They talk to each other: Rocio and Marina talk to each other about a rape, but the dialogue is not audible and reported by Rocio to Juan.
The group of girls (including Marina) are interrogated about the missing girls and start chatting about their boyfriends and Quini.
Marina and her mother talk about marina health.
3. The movie fail the test, it is a thriller really classical in its construction. The two policeman interview and interrogate other characters. The other characters don't have much screen time and don't talk so much.

It is a good thriller in an interesting setting (Andalusia in a post Franco Spain). Give it a try.
