MAY GOD SAVE US

Screening

03/12/2017 12:30 pm

Though its plot follows police on the trail of a serial killer, the Goya-nominated May God Save Us is much more than a standard procedural. Set in Madrid in 2011, with a Papal visit looming and anti-austerity protests burgeoning, this intricate thriller from Rodrigo Sorogoyan—whose spare romance Stockholm screened here in 2014—combines genre thrills with searing social critique and psychological complexity. The film’s true detectives are played by Almodóvar alumni Roberto Alamo and Antonio da la Torre—who recently did some killing himself in Cannibal. The closer they get to capturing their killer, the more they realize how much all three of them have in common.
