Retribution (a Dani de la Torre film)

Feature film / Action thriller

I’ve known Dani de la Torre for almost twenty years now and , since the times of his first short films, it was obvious that he’s a really talented filmmaker. So, to me it was a privilege making this journey by his side; and it gave me a unique opportunity to play with a kind of film which is quite unusual in Spanish cinema.
Further more, it was a project that brought very many godd moments with it: the premieres in festivals like Venice and San Sebastian (the projection in the velodrome was really exciting) , the great reception by the audience in the theaters and, finally, a series of awards such as the CEC Medals and the Goya Awards, which were the perfect ending for on of the most joyous collaborations in my life.



Carlos, a bank executive, starts his daily routine by driving his kids to school. When he takes off in his car, he receives an anonymous telephone call informing him that there is a bomb under his seat. A stranger’s voice tells him he has just a few hours to obtain a large amount of money or else the bomb inside the car will explode.
