Thriller | Terrorism. ETA. Based On A True Story. 1970s
- Synopsis / Plot
- From 1973 until 1975, Mikel Lejarza, an agent of the Spanish secret police code name “El Lobo” (the wolf) was able to infiltrate the very top echelons of the militant Basque group ETA. Lejarza’s revelations were so far-reaching that he personally was able to bring down almost one quarter of the entire organization. A few years ago producer Melchor Miralles established contact with El Lobo, and convinced him to tell his story. The result is this absolutely riveting thriller starring Eduardo Noriega in the lead role and featuring José Coronado, José Sanz and Silvia Abascal. The film explores the contradictions of El Lobo’s role — he was, after all, working for the Franco government, at a time when ETA was allied with pro-democratic forces throughout Spain — as well as the tensions within Basque separatist politics.
