The Hours of the Day

Las horas del día

Thirty-five-year-old Abel follows the same torturous routine every day, making the same route through an outlying suburb of Barcelona and seeing the same familiar faces. But, as is the case with seemingly placid appearances, a dark abyss opens under the calm surface. One Thursday evening, Abel kills again. Maintaining a clinical gaze to the micro-universe of the killer next door, Rosales presents already in his first film a lesson on maintaining the right atmosphere and pace, where every second counts.
