The Fury of a Patient Man (Tarde para la ira)

Part of the Once Upon a Time in Spain Strand


With its title taken from John Dryden’s poem ‘Absalom and Achitophel’, this superb drama thriller is a remarkable directorial debut from actor Raúl Arévalo (Even the Rain). Starring the brilliant Antonio de la Torre (Abracadabra), who appeared with Arévalo in The Last Circus (2010) and Marshland (2014) (both screening in this strand), The Fury of a Patient Man premiered at the 73rd Venice Film Festival and went on to win four Goya Awards, including Best Film and Best New Director.

‘A broodingly intense revenge thriller.’
