Las Horas del Dia

2003 NR

Abel (Àlex Brendemühl) leads a quiet and dreary life, running a small boutique with his mother in a Barcelona suburb, until the tedium of his daily rituals drives the mild-mannered man to desperation and murder. This thoughtful psychological drama from Spain offers little explanation for what pushes Abel over the edge, but illustrates how the most average of men can become a horrific serial killer.
