It should be the happiest of times.  A new class of psychology students are graduating from their university studies – except Professor Espinosa has flunked handsome young Francisco Garralda, and pretty young Nuria Abreu isn’t getting the attention she wants from Francisco, either.  Never one to let mere rules stand in the way of getting ahead, Francisco visits the Professor to plead for a passing grade – to which the Professor agrees, on one deadly condition – that Francisco “help” the Professor relieve his long-standing obsession with guilt. With a suspicious Nuria soon realizing that there is more going on than meets the eye, the “cat” and the “mouse” in this cat-and-mouse game begin to rapidly shift identities…

A fast-paced, high-concept thriller with startling twists and turns, Innocent Killers is a mind-bending new entry into a genre that Spanish cinema does remarkably well.  With a talented cast of Spain’s newest generation of actors, led by Maxi Iglesias and Aura Garrido (so memorable on screen at last year’s Festival in Stockholm), this is sleek, adrenaline-rush entertainment. – Jaie Laplante
