La espalda de Dios / BEHIND GOD'S BACK
Made in Spanish

Based on a true story, this is a film about Rosa, a woman who fell in love with the wrong man. And about how she left the safety of her previous life to be with Iván and set up a bar. Iván's accumulated gambling debts oblige Rosa to rent out her house by the hour to prostitutes, before she lands herself in jail for pumping a bullet into him when she can't take any more of his nonsense. La espalda de Dios tells of the road to love-induced decline, demonstrating the irrational behaviour, way beyond the bounds of all logic, of a woman in love and how passion makes balanced, sensible people into beings who do things causing them hurt and suffering.
PABLO LLORCA La espalda de Dios is the fourth feature by Pablo Llorca (born in 1963). His previous films are Venecias (1989), Jardines colgantes (Hanging Gardens, 1993) and Todas hieren (1998), all of which have been present at international festivals (Jardines colgantes was screened in Zabaltegi at San Sebastian) and have garnered numerous awards. Llorca has also developed an intense career as a director of shorts and as a director and writer of documentaries.
