PURGATORIO (PURGATORY)

2014 / 82' / SPAIN

A location, two characters and a ghost story, that was the premise. I like genre films practically in all aspects, but I have a special predilection for films that as well as entertaining, keep a critical eye on the world around them. In Purgatory, there were two aspects that I wanted to be present from the beginning. On one hand placing the action in a newly built neighborhood, abandoned to fate when the housing bubble bursted in Spain, in other hand, give the patina of drama that accompanies the protagonist because of the traumatic event that she has experienced, the death of a loved one. However, none of this would have been possible without Oona.
