The Distance (La Distancia)

Spain 2006

Details imdb

Seen 20 June 2012

A pawn in a bigger game

IMDB 5.8/10
The premise is simple and starts with a  boxer who is waiting to be released from prison in a week's time asked to murder another inmate. That is the start of his misadventure in a world not of his own. It is not a grip the seat kind of thriller but it has its moments. I'll give this a 7.0/10

My impressions:

In prison due to past events
Innocent but at the mercy of the system

To be free is not without sacrifices
Even if it leads to dangerous paths
It has to be taken

As the other option
Would be a longer time
Behind bars

The girl was supposed to be
Just a one night stand
But the heart has a mind of its own
That increases the delicate balance

Danger is evident
A territory alien to outsiders
Intrigue and mayhem are in control

Others are just collateral damage
In the pursuit of riches and fame
