‘Death of a cyclist’
Spain, 1955 (81 minutes). Director, Juan Antonio Bardem. Interpreters: Alberto Closas, Lucía Bosé, Alicia Romay.
The Cannes Film Critics’ Award endorses the quality of one of the best films by Juan Antonio Bardem. The story, which starts from a real event, focuses its attention on the prohibited relationship established between a university professor and a married woman. The censorship prevailing at the time did not allow Bardem’s script to develop as it should, since neither adultery nor the bed scenes had a place in the cinema of those years. Two excellent actors, Alberto Closas and Lucía Bose, star in this very interesting work that contributed to the expansion of Spanish cinema outside our borders. A classic.

United Kingdom, 2011 (97 minutes). Director: Elliott Lester. Performers: Jason Statham, Paddy Considine, Aidan Gillen, Zawe Ashton.
A politically incorrect and rude police officer has to catch a murderer and nothing and nobody will stop him. It sounds to them, it’s like Dirty Harry. The difference, John Statham is not, even remotely, the great Clint Eastwood. It does not deceive, a conventional amalgam of police action and psychological intrigue.
