The debut film of director Miguel Cohan (from Buenos Aires) was the overwhelming winner at the Seminci (2010) in Valladolid, where it fetched the Golden Spike, the Fipresci Award, and the Pilar Miró Award for Best New Director. Its merits? Combining a thriller, at an ever-increasing pace, and social drama, along with an open, very serious criticism of media and political manipulations within the judicial system.
