el desorden que dejas - season 1

Great Storytelling 

By: IMDB-albertval-69560 


This is a crime story but with a remarkably refreshing, if not out-of-the-ordinary, plot development. Usually, in a murder/homicide, a body is discovered, the police steps in to investigate checking whatever clues they might uncover, then the perpetrator is caught and brought to justice or is killed. Not in this case. The plot unfolds not as one story but two stories that are inextricably intertwined. One story is about the victim who was a literature teacher in a high school somewhere in Galicia. The other story is about the substitute teacher who is challenged to get to the bottom of the death of her predecessor. The way these two stories play out, episode by episode, really piques the viewer's interest, and haunts him/her like it does Raquel. It would be difficult to pause and continue viewing later. This is the strength of the series. The cast too is great. Strong performances by Viruca and Raquel. There's this hospital scene where Viruca and Raquel are separately visiting their sick mothers. It was heartwarming how the director is able to create the illusion where the victim and the amateur detective are both in that place at the same time briefly talking to each other. I should also mention that the younger actors like Iago, Roi and Nerea lend laudable support to the older ones. Last but certainly not the least is the show's theme song. It's haunting and fittingly delineates the emotional undertones the story evokes.
