Movie Info

During the waning days of Gen. Franco's reign, apolitical Basque building contractor Txema (Eduardo Noriega) is induced by an agent of Spain's secret police (José Coronado) to infiltrate ETA, the most dangerous of the Basque separatist groups. As El Lobo, he rises to a position of power within the increasingly ruthless terrorist organization, but although he maintains his double-agent connections, the increasingly conflicted Txema begins to sympathize with the separatists' beliefs.

Audience Reviews for The Wolf

  • May 11, 2013
    In "El Lobo," Begona(Silvia Abascal) is alarmed at ETA terrorists being welcomed into her home by her husband Txema(Eduardo Noriega). He tries to reassure her but her worries are only confirmed when an informer is killed the following day. After being caught up in the resultant dragnet, Txema is told by Ricardo(Jose Coronado) of the Secret Service that he can sense his reluctance, asking him to work for him. What he is looking for is not just another informant, but somebody who can infiltrate the ETA and report back. With his construction business failing, Txema agrees, accepting a check in lieu of the usual thirty pieces of silver. At least, the job is not all bad for Txema when he meets Amaia(Melanie Doutey) at a wedding, doubling as a party congress. "El Lobo" is the kind of morally complex, suspenseful, sexy and paranoid thriller that they simply do not make anymore(with the possible exception of FX's "The Americans," that is). That's even after a rough start in trying to establish the situation before it soon settles down into the facts of its truth based story, including details of the time like what it was like to live in Franco's Spain.(Bonus points for the Patti Smith song.) Plus, I always love political arguments, as Txema ia caught up in a unique position of working against the violence committed by those he would normally be on the side of in his Basque homeland while being allied with the Fascists in Spain. That same violence ends up taking a terrible toll on him, too, as seen in the opening scene.
