Les Horas del día (The Hours of the Day)
Abel (Alex Brendemuhl) lives with his mother in a small town just outside of Barcelona. His mundane life centers around the same few locations day after day--the dress shop where he works with his mother, his home, his girlfriend's apartment, and a few restaurants. As the repetition of his seemingly small, insignificant life wears him down psychologically, he is driven to murder. Deliberately paced, but effective in it's portrayal of the stifling boredom of its antihero's existence, Jaime Rosales's debut is a unique entry in the serial killer genre.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The Hours of the Day doesn't really qualify as a thriller -- it's more of a clinical study than anything else -- but its cumulative impact is chilling."
‑ Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald
