Movie Info

In a gross miscarriage of justice, based on an actual event, two men are falsely accused and convicted of the murder of a missing shepherd from a small Spanish village. A despotic district court judge and a right-wing congressman orchestrate the trial. The two men are subjected to brutal torture by sadistic guards to exact a confession of guilt. The men serve 6 years of a 15-year prison term before they are released, and they later discover their alleged victim is alive and well in a neighboring village. The 15-minute torture scene is harrowing, as is the subsequent passage of the exhuming of human corpses. ~ Dan Pavlides, Rovi

Audience Reviews for The Cuenca Crime (Crimen de Cuenca)

I don't think this was every released in the US, but if you can see it, do so. When a man disappears from his town, suspicion is cast on two men who are tortured until they accuse one another of the crime. But with the victim merely missing, was there even a crime?
