NO REST FOR THE WICKED [No habrá paz para los malvados]

Inspector Santos Trinidad (José Coronado), a grizzled veteran policeman, drinks too much and works too little. But for the first time, he'll find himself at the center of an investigation when a drunken bar brawl leads him to shoot three men dead, while a fourth escapes. Following his trail, Santos discovers a complicated network of prostitution and drug trafficking that serves to finance a far more complex criminal plan. A visceral noir tale, this film took home an impressive six Goya Awards in 2012, including Best Film, Best Director and Best Actor. Official Selection, 2011 San Sebastián Film Festival; 2012 Rotterdam Film Festival.
