If I tell you that health is a serious thing, I have come to be the example of Perogrullo, the greatest good that people have, albeit with nuances, of course. Sanity is such an important and underrated part of what we’re talking about that we are reproached for being difficult to confirm an evil that affects us in a potentially devastating way and is often unnoticed by the naked eye. But never underestimate the well-being of the brain.
The film that interests us explores the dangerous ways of what is called insanity, based on Torcuato Luca de Tena’s masterpiece of Spanish literature, God’s Twisted Lines. In this psychological thriller, the viewer is presented with the dilemma of two possible sides of a truth that he must discover by accompanying the protagonist on his winding journey through the bowels of the sanatorium, psychiatric center or mental hospital. The characters on the tape are attributed to him.
The story takes place in the seventies and revolves around a researcher, or so he says, who infiltrates there to investigate the death of one of the patients, but as the days go by the director, or so he says, (one of the greatest on the big screen in Spain, the ever-influential Eduard Fernández) and his theories cast doubt on the sanity of the protagonist, which Bárbara Lennie interpreted with icy and commendable grace and fortitude. It is precisely the work of the Madrid actress at her full personal and professional maturity that seems to be the biggest point in favor of Oriol Paulo’s production proposal; This director is best known for directing the Spanish original series The Innocent, also a “complex thriller” starring Mario Casas, Aura Garrido, Alexandra Jiménez and José Coronado, and is recommended to fans of the genre. ; So, while adapting such a famous work is an extra responsibility that stands out at times, he is exceedingly comfortable with this type of project.
By focusing more on the police investigation rather than the complexities of the mind or the disturbing and feverish delusions suggested by the original work contemplated in the book, he is determined to make the travel accomplice an bystander who cannot escape a guaranteed journey. minimal curiosity to decipher the truth. . Which is exactly what the purpose in the end is.
So the entertainment manages to prevail in a job that can be much more intense, but also much deeper, the cost is much less for all palates, much less enjoyable for the big screen. Who is telling the truth? Or at least he thinks who said it. Who keeps a secret if someone doesn’t? If so, who is the murderer? Intrigue is guaranteed.
