Unit 7 (2012) a film by Alberto Rodriguez


Unit 7 (Original tittle Grupo 7) is a Spanish thriller directed by Alberto Rodríguez from a screenplay written by Alberto Rodríguez and Rafael Cobos, and starring Antonio de la Torre, Mario Casas, Joaquin Nunez, Jose Manuel Poga, Imma Cuesta, and Julián Villagrán. 

Summary: The four cops of Grupo 7 (Unit 7) have a tough mission: to eradicate the most dangerous trafficking network of the city of Seville before the opening of the 1992 Seville World Exhibition, and bring an end to the corrosive power that has taken hold of the streets. Among them are Angel (Mario Casas), the leader of the unit, a young officer aspiring to become detective, and Rafael (Antonio de la Torre), a violent yet efficient cop. Over the course of their years-long mission, the two officers will take opposite directions: Angel’s ambition will lead him to seek results by any means necessary, while Rafael’s character will change when he meets a charismatic woman.

It was released in Spain on 4 April 2012. I’m planning to see soon, stay tuned.

Unit 7 screens on April 22, 24, and 25 at the Tribeca Film Festival
