dir. Miguel Courtois, 2004, Spain, 120 min.

Fast-paced and intriguing, El Lobo is a thriller based on the true story of Mikel Lejarza, a young Basque construction worker. In the 1970s "el Lobo" ("the wolf") was employed by Franco's secret service to infiltrate the Basque terrorist outfit ETA, which lead to the arrest of nearly a quarter of ETA's members. The film is set during Spain's turbulent transition from Franco's dictatorship to democracy. Eduardo Noriega plays Txema, whose ETA connections are exploited by corrupt secret service officials desperately seeking inside information from the organization. El Lobo is soon left alone to fend for himself after having worked for both sides. A wonderful mixture of action and romance, human drama and political intrigue, this film provides an inside look at the terrorist group as well as the secret service activities in the Franco era.
