      Diego Galán El Pais (Spain) Beyond its deficiencies, The Cuenca Crime is valuable because of its existence, ability to evoke, and willingness to give back to cinema its nonconformist character. [Full Review in Spanish] Aug 19, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member The movie is not only important because the real fact that changed politics and law in Spain, but because, when it was released in 1983, its director was accused of attacking security forces of the nation, and almost went to judge, indicating that freedom of expression was not fully developed in the country. Torture scenes are hard, so, it is good that you know it. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Audience Member I don't think this was every released in the US, but if you can see it, do so. When a man disappears from his town, suspicion is cast on two men who are tortured until they accuse one another of the crime. But with the victim merely missing, was there even a crime? Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member Impactante y brutal, sobre todo por la realidad de los hechos... Los valores que nos desvelan esta historia no tienen parangón, la amistad, el perdón, pero por sobre todas las cosas la dignidad... Al final uno se siente un poco vacío, no en vano, pierden los que menos lo merecían…. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Audience Member En DVD Impactante y en su tiempo polemica pelicula que denuncia que pone sobre el tapete los oscuros entresijos de la justicia ciega en un caso real ocurrido en Cuenca. Rodada de una manera cruda y en todo lo posible imparcial tratando de retratar de una manera bien lograda una epoca de la España preguerra. Basada en hechos reales. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member LETTERBOX. Concisa y algo convencional y sensacionalista, pero logra no desviarse mucho de su camino (en historia y estilo) antes de llegar a un final conmovedor. / Concise and somewhat conventional and sensationalistic, but manages to not deviate too much from its path (both in story and style) before reaching its moving finale. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Masterpiece based in the deep roots of the Spanish cultures: total avoc and self-destruction. Forbidden by the first democratic government. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
