Unit 7 (Grupo 7)


With Alberto Rodríguez in person 

Presented by the Consulate General of Spain

Opening night reception sponsored by Spain Culture New York-Consulate General of Spain and the festival partners

Spain. Dir. Alberto Rodríguez. 2012, 96 mins. Digital projection. With Antonio de la Torre, Mario Casas. Narcotics squad Unit 7 tries to clean up the mean streets of late-1980s Seville in this gritty, gripping thriller. In the tradition of 70s policiers like The French Connection and Serpico, Unit 7 balances its high-octane action with engrossing character development, as the four-man squad succumbs to the lure of corruption. Anchored by a bravura turn by Mario Casas as a rookie who goes from wet-behind-the-ears recruit to sadistic rogue operative, this gut-punching crime saga raises probing moral questions while delivering slick genre thrills.
