Synopsis:
A strikingly original feature debut from Jaime Rosales, the methodically crafted The Hours of the Day seeps its way into the audience's skin while managing to avoid the more obvious conventions of the thriller genre. Abel (Alex Brendemuhl giving an astonishing performance) leads a seemingly normal life; he operates a family clothing store, has a loving girlfriend with whom he plans to buy an apartment and enjoys a good relationship with family and friends. Behind this mask of normalcy however, something evil is at work as Abel demonstrates a capacity for unmotivated and unpredictable violence that transforms him into an utterly impenetrable creature.
Based on a story that appeared in The Times, Rosales follows in the European tradition of films such as A Short Film About Killing and Robert Succo, offering a more complex but none-the-less chilling portrait of an outwardly ordinary yet quietly deranged murderer.
