Rancor | Chicago Reader


Initially promising, this 2002 Spanish thriller by Miguel Albaladejo deteriorates steadily, turning nasty and stupid in the final reel. In a sleepy coastal community a brittle singer (Lolita Flores) recognizes a small businessman (Jorge Perugorria) as a criminal she knew a decade earlier. Unwilling to allow him to turn over a new leaf, she sets in train a violent and unlikely sequence of events that culminates in a convoluted hostage crisis. Albaladejo never achieves a stable style or tone, the dialogue is strained, and the characters are poorly defined. 106 min.
