Agustí Villaronga’s legendary, controversial film debut has lost nothing of its power. To those unafraid, it provides an insight into human decline. A Nazi death camp doctor who has fled to Spain continues his terrible activities, until he ends up in an iron lung.
A stunning film debut from Spain, deeply embedded in the dark and tortured histories suppressed and unnamable. Agustí Villaronga transmutes them into a sensual, nocturnal thriller equal parts De Palma and Argento, all richly intertwined with history’s horrors—and not for the faint of heart.
