Set in the mid-1990s, this fact-based thriller recounts the story of Spanish banker, arms dealer and spy Francisco Paesa. Narrated by Jesus Camoes (José Coronado), whose complicity in the action constitutes a seductive mystery all its own, Smoke & Mirrors tracks Paesa (Eduard Fernandez) from his return to Madrid after years of exile to his involvement in a former police chief’s sprawling embezzlement operation to his elaborate program of revenge.

The latest from Goya-winning director Alberto Rodríguez (Marshland) is a dazzling saga of crime and duplicity that recalls Scorsese and Sorrentino while blazing a trail all its own.

This film is also featured in the 2017 Film Festival’s HBO Ibero American Competition  Film Category
