Guerra Santa

1 First I marry them, then I bring them here, to our hotel.
It's as if I was using my position to do business.
We can go shopping in Paris.
You're married to Merche and this town.
I don't want to hurt you.

Books of magic, Manuel.
The gospels of Jesus himself.

God is a fount of patience, and encourages us to have a single feeling - Elena? - Fr.
Vergara? I've been trying to contact you for days.
- There isn't much of a signal here.
- Where are you? It's best if you don't know.
I called you from Rome.
I know.
What was so urgent? Are you still there? No, it wasn't a safe place.
Listen to me, Elena.
You have to be careful.
Because of me they're going to go after you now.
I told them about the coin, that you had it.
Forgive me.
I'm sorry.
All these months, I've been trying to hide the truth from you, from everyone, even from myself.
- I didn't want to see it.
- Where are you, Father? That doesn't matter.
What matters is that you have to escape.
They'll do anything to get it back.
I want to join you.
That's impossible.
Vergara, I can't do this on my own.
I need you to help me.
Tell me where you are, no matter how far away it is.
I don't want to end up dead like Sandro.
I'll tell Paco, his wife, and all our friends.
And together we can sort it out.
You don't know who Sandro is.
Yes, I do know.
You were friends at the seminary, in Rome.
You told me.
How else could I know? Why aren't you saying anything? Don't you trust me anymore? ALEPPO, SYRIA 30 COINS - Pablo! - Thank you very much.
- Mr.
Mayor! - Happy to see you! - Hi! Good morning.

- Come here.
Come on! Pick it up, pick it up! You can do it.
- There we go! - Come on! - Can you please help me? - Come on, you can do it! Well done, Mayor! - Thank you, Rogelio.
- No, no, it's for you.
Take it with you.
- No, please.
I can't carry it, Rogelio.
- Yes, it's for you.
I brought it for you! It'll last all year long.
- I'm glad to see you all.
- Good! - Piedad! You look so young.
- Thank you.
- What's your skincare routine? - Just soap and water.
- Are you serious? - Yes! Give me a kiss.
You really do know your business.
You're such a flatterer I'm okay, I'm okay.
This is going so well.
- Can we talk for a minute? - Now? It'll just be a minute.
Manolo Come, please.
- How can I explain this? - Paco, we don't have all day.
What's wrong? I can't take any more.
- You can't take any more of what? - All this.
- The campaigning? - No, no Everything.
Paco, what are you trying to say? I can't go on greeting people, looking happy It isn't in me.
It isn't in you? Fantastic.
I've got no enthusiasm, Merche.
I have never wanted to be mayor.
You know that.
I find it hard to smile at people everyday.
I don't feel like it.
He doesn't feel like it And you think that I do feel like it? That I want to do all this? - I don't know.
- Do you think I do it for pleasure? - I see - This is work, it isn't a party! Everyone else can come and stuff themselves with wine and chorizo, but we are working.
Let's see if you can get that into your head.
Okay, okay, Merche.
We've been at this for years, and you still don't understand.
You're a fucking child.
Suddenly you get bored and you want to leave! Before, I didn't care, but now I - Mr.
Mayor! - I get a lump in my throat.
Well, get rid of it, because you have to speak now.
- Now? - Yes, they're waiting for you.
Mayor! Thank you very much everyone for coming along.
Well, you see what the town is like Full of friends who are here to share with all of you the best produce from our land.
Three years already defending the initials of this party.
Who'd have believed it! And with every year that passes fighting for our traditions makes me even prouder.
Well, I'm going to shut up now.
I'm sure you're all very hungry There's no better place to eat than here, right? What can I tell you that you don't already know? Every year I say the same things.
A time comes when Well, things are what they are.
Or not Or not, because you can change too, you can do a 180-degree turn.
What is it they say now? "Reinvent yourself.
" Move out of your comfort zone.
Well, that's what I'm going to do.
Let others do the talking.
Maybe they do have important things to say And I want to thank you for all these years.
You have made me feel appreciated and proud to be your mayor.
So Thank you very much.
Are you leaving? Come on! And this is what we were waiting for? - Sergeant Laguna? - Yes.
María Salcedo.
- My partner, Cristina Miralles.
- How can I help you? We work for the Secretary of State for Security.
- We've been sent from Madrid.
- I know, I got the email.
- I thought you'd arrive tomorrow.
- Well, we're here now.
But if you're very busy at the moment No, no, no time like the present.
If you'd like to come with me My wife has prepared two rooms for you at the station.
Don't worry, that won't be necessary.
We're staying at the hotel.
At the hotel? Okay It'll be much more comfortable for you.
There's no comparison.
Well, if you will Here is all the information.
These are the case files from the last year.
If you want to go over them, take your time.
I'll wait for you in the square.
That won't be necessary.
We've read them all already.
Okay The increase in the number of reports in recent months is rather strange.
Yes, well, to be honest, it's been a rather eventful year.
- "Eventful"? - Well, with a lot of work.
That isn't normal here.
In five years, you've written up three reports.
In the last six months, twenty-five.
Among them, several deaths, one disappearance, two suicide attempts I can't understand it either.
I don't know what's happening in this town.
That's why we're here.
You don't know how much I appreciate it.
I've been asking for reinforcements for weeks.
We are not reinforcements.
You are now the reinforcement.
From today, we are taking command in this territorial division, and you will report directly to us.
- Of course.
- Good.
We'd like to start with the most recent event.
If you don't mind Jesús Ágreda García.
Breach of the peace, shots on a public thoroughfare, resisting arrest - He's a good man.
He lost his mind.
- Where is he now? At home.
Awaiting trial.
He didn't harm anyone.
- We'd like to talk to him.
- He isn't a very expressive person - But I can call him tomorrow and - It's better to do it now.
- Don't you think? - Yes, yes, of course.
Why wait until tomorrow? Mom It's Laguna again, and he's got two others with him.
Hello, Rosario.
Look at how big he is now.
We've come to have a word with Jesús.
He's with the animals.
- Go get your father.
- No, no, stay with the baby.
I'll go.
He's lovely.
What's his name? - Jesús.
Like his grandfather.
- And his father? We don't know who the father is.
I know who he is, but I'm not going to say.
You live in our house It isn't asking too much for you to have a bit of trust.
Yes, trust so that my father can put a couple of bullets in him, right? She doesn't know what she's saying.
My husband is a normal person.
He's just a bit old-fashioned.
That's all.
Jesús! We have to talk.
Look, there's nothing wrong.
Everything's fine, but people have come from Madrid to check up on a few things and they want to ask you a few questions.
What are they going to ask me? You just say what we put in the statement.
So I have to lie again.
For fuck's sake, Jesús, we talked about this.
If you say you killed someone, you'll go to jail, it's as simple as that.
You took your rifle because you were very upset about what happened your daughter.
You started firing off shots in the street.
End of story.
The other thing happened long ago and it's all forgotten.
Two years ago I killed a man.
- And then he was alive, in the square.
- What do you want? To screw me too? Do you want to screw me? I don't understand shit about what's going on here.
But to help you and your family I'm keeping it quiet.
And you're going to do the same, right? I don't know who you killed two years ago, but it wasn't Elena's husband.
So get that idea out of your head.
Understood? They're waiting for you.
- Just be patient.
He's coming now.
- He hasn't slept for a month.
He gets up at night, he keeps walking around the house Believe me, he's really sorry.
- Does your husband drink? - What? Does he consume alcohol, or other substances? My father may be a bastard, but he isn't a drunk or a drug addict, okay? In his declaration he says that he was drunk.
That specific day, yes, but it isn't a habit.
I don't know what the hell he's doing.
Let's go.
I don't like this at all.
He isn't going to run away.
I assure you.
Why would he run away? Don't! No! No! Stay calm.
Calm down.
No, no, no.
Leave me! I don't want this.
I don't want this.
We are the owners of the peace.
You're unfaithful.
You can't do this to me.
Leave me.
- You aren't - Please.
Come with me.
- What's going on? - Come with me.
Allah! Allah! You've killed me.
Our blood is very valuable I can't stay here any longer.
In fact, I shouldn't have come.
It's cowardice.
I was running away and I don't like that.
It's the wisest thing.
It's impossible for him to find you here.
- I'm not so sure.
- Have you done anything rash? Have you used the phone? - I told you not to do that.
- I thought it was Elena.
If I brought you here, it was so that you would talk to nobody.
I have to talk to her.
To warn her about what's happening.
If you go near her, you'll attract your enemy.
He detects your presence through your fear.
Answer me one question.
If I'm asking you not to trust anyone, why do you trust me? Because you don't want to know where the coin is.
Of course not.
He would follow me, as he does you.
Why are you risking your life by coming here? The situation is much worse than we imagined.
I have no access to the Holy Father.
He has managed to control all the members of the Curia who are in touch with him.
- Santoro is the master of the Vatican.
- If we hide, he'll continue to be that.
Listen to me.
At mid-morning, in a private audience, a man armed with a knife attacked the Pope.
It was a serious injury and he lost a lot of blood.
A lot of people would say the doctor saved his life, but you and I We know there was something more.
The relics! The power emanating from the sacred objects kept by the Church protect him, because the balance always leans in our favor.
But when the enemy gets the 30 coins, their power will be clearly greater.
Manuel They already have 29.
It all depends on Elena.
Can we do nothing to warn her? The world of dreams.
- Like with Sandro.
- It's the only way.
Santoro knows about it too.
He could find us.
There? He couldn't Your enemy is like a child.
He could find us or get lost on the way.
In jungles across the planet the rhythm of life is controlled by one thing: the Sun.
Every day at the start of sunrise, the jungle becomes a whirlwind of activity Have you seen Elena? Over half the species on Earth live in jungles, the jungles turn into a sea of noises.
A jungle of sounds in which each species seems to want to impose its domination.
Has anyone seen Elena? That's why many species try to survive In a very hostile environment, predators seek In any case, you could see it coming.
You're never surprised by anything.
And it's like your head's in the clouds.
Didn't you see how she looked at him? She was devouring him with her eyes.
Since she came to the town, she hasn't stopped screwing.
With him, and with a few more.
The fucking slut.
And all the time, Merche putting on a brave front.
Here, love.
What are you looking at? - He's the worst of them.
- He's more to blame than anyone.
First he messes her up with his insane ideas and then leaves her alone, scared to death.
Do you want a bit, Father? To kill your hunger.
How do I know it's you? I know your secret hiding place.
It's in the church, behind a wooden virgin.
Tell me something more.
Something between you and me.
You like me And that makes you nervous.
It makes you feel guilty.
That happens to half the town.
You usually wash bullets with holy water.
Elena, we're both dreaming, but we're not alone, they can hear us.
Go back to the town, we'll meet there.
It all depends on you.
If they get the coin, we're lost.
You must protect it with your life until I get back.
I don't have it anymore.
- You don't have it? - It was harming me.
I tried to separate from it, throwing it far away, like when you throw a stone in the sea, and I don't want it to come back.
What? They said it would come back to me.
That it would come back? Did they say that? I'm so sorry, Rosario.
Leave me alone! Don't touch me! It's all your fault! What right did you have? Coming to my house asking questions, telling everyone about my daughter's misfortune! - Mom, please! - He wasn't like that.
You drove him crazy between all of you.
You too, asking if he was a drunk, and God knows what else! Where is he? Where's the other one? Where's Laguna? Where is he? Let him show his face, if he's got the nerve! Where is he? - Two coffees, very little milk.
- So you want two "cortados".
No, a "cortado" has very little milk.
I want a bit more but not too much.
- Is he an idiot? - Relax.
Have a bit of respect, we're town hall officials.
- Where's Isabel? - At the cemetery.
She's missed.
What a run we've had.
The police have come from Madrid just to see what's happening in this town.
- And look what they walked into.
- Another suicide.
What I don't understand is how a guy who's fired his rifle in the street is set free the next day.
Yeah, and when he has a gun at home.
Give me another, Ricardo.
Come on! Come on! Come on! Come on! Come on! Where is he? - Where is he? - This is him.
He is This one.
This one What's the matter? I haven't done anything.
Come with us, come with us - Aren't you going to talk to me? - No, I have nothing to say.
Well, yes, I do.
We have two policewomen in the hotel.
I guess they'll want to talk to you, if you're still mayor.
What's happening to us, Merche? What's happening to us is very clear, Paco.
You said it in the middle of the square, in front of everyone, just like that Straight out, without consulting anyone.
That isn't true.
I wanted to talk to you, but you didn't want to listen.
Everything has to be when you want it and as you want it, right? "I'm bored of being mayor.
And, hey, I'll just say it like that, without a worry!" Don't you realize how selfish you are? - You only think about yourself.
- Okay.
Don't you ever stop to think that what you do affects everyone around you, your family, what we're building together? You can't force me to do something I don't want to do.
Come on In the end I'll be the one who has to apologize.
Do you always have to be the victim? You're the one who suffers most! The rest of us are here to console you.
- But I didn't get married for that.
- And what did we get married for? I don't know what we got married for, Merche.
If you're going to say things like that, you'd better leave.
We used to have a project in common, and it was very simple.
To be happy.
Do you think we're happy? I'm not going to get into that, Paco.
It's precisely what we have to get into.
That is the most important thing.
Do you want to tell me something, Paco? For a year now, it seems that we're just partners in a company.
I don't know if there's anything else that unites us.
You knew from the beginning.
You knew I couldn't have children! Don't come now telling me we're just a company! - I haven't said that.
- Go to hell! What do you think, that I'm an idiot? That I don't know where all this is coming from? - Where is it coming from? - Do you really think you've got a chance with her? You think that now her husband is dead, she'll come running after you? She's gone, Paco, she's gone.
And she's dumped you! Go look for her! Go look for her, but leave me in peace! I do know what I'm doing with my life, do you hear? What the fuck are you looking at? Hey, dog! - Do you speak Spanish? - If anyone will listen to me, yes.
My name is Ahmed.
I am going to translate.
- Why are you here? - My job is to help people.
If you really wanted to help us, you'd pick up a weapon, as I have done.
Not everything is solved with weapons.
Weapons aren't the solution.
Whoever hides a cross under his clothes is our enemy.
Who sent you here to spy on us? Are all those who don't think like you your enemies? Our enemy is the devil, who wants to put an end to Allah.
Then we're on the same side.
SAINT DENIS, PARIS - Good afternoon.
- Do I know you? That doesn't matter.
Can you walk normally? Of course.
Why do you ask? - Look! - Great! - And what's your sight like? - Pretty good But I need glasses to read the newspaper.
Don't worry.
Today you're not going to read the newspaper.
- It's for me? - It is.
It's nice.
Come with me.
Antoine, where are you going? You can't go out now - Your wife? - Yes, my wife.
And our boy, Alfonso.
This photo was taken when I was posted in Burgos.
He was about four then.
Now he's studying in Madrid.
And my wife is upstairs, making lunch.
If you like, we can go up and I'll introduce you.
Some other time.
Right now we want to talk to Paco, if you don't mind.
I don't know what more you'll learn about the case from talking to him.
He's the mayor, right? He's also married to Mercedes Gandía, the owner of the abattoir, - and the town hotel.
- That's right.
But according to this he was with Elena Echevarría, the vet.
Was he with the vet at the time her husband committed suicide? And what's wrong with that? Good evening.
Sit down, please.
What are you thinking about? It seems like you were very far away.
The plate of lasagne.
- You know what my problem is? - No.
I find it hard to recognize happiness when I see it.
I've never had it in front of me.
It's always avoided me.
It's slipped through my fingers And now that it's in front of me I don't know I don't want to lose it.
- I'm hungry.
- Me too.
I think we both deserve it.
Do you know how many times I imagined being like this, like we are now? Not just for the sex, eh? Although that was It's this feeling of picking up the cards and having four aces in your hand.
It wasn't luck.
You've worked at it.
You're really persistent.
You've tried again and again.
In the end If I want something I go after it, all the way.
Good evening, sir.
You say that it wasn't luck, but I think it was.
Something happened to me You're going to laugh.
What happened to you? Do you remember that restaurant where I wanted to take you, the Japanese one? Where they open the fish at the table and serve it directly to you? Yes, that one.
Well, a month ago I went back with some friends.
And I was a bit fucked up, because I couldn't stop thinking about you.
Anyway The chef put his hand in there, into the fish, and boom! He pulled out this.
Well, not the box, what's inside it.
Are you proposing to me? Are you crazy? You're asking me if Elena had a good relationship with her husband? Yes.
Was she happy when he came back, without any explanation, after he'd been missing for two years? Of course she was happy! What are you getting at? What really happened at the dam? You were there.
- So was Laguna.
- We already have his statement.
How would you define your intimate relationship with her? "Intimate"? Better or worse than the one she had with her husband? I don't feel very comfortable in this interview, okay? Fine, then Well Roque Listen, I really love you - And today was wonderful, but this - No, I just didn't know where to put it! - What is it? - Open it, you'll flip.
- What is that? - I'm sorry, Elena.
I didn't know it was going to upset you so much! I thought you'd like it.
It's a coin exactly like the one you showed me, remember? - You told me you'd lost it.
- I didn't lose it I threw it away.
I wanted to get rid of it, do you understand? If I'd known I swear I kept it because I thought it was like a sign of fate, that it united us! I thought, "Great, the coin that Elena lost was in the guts of a fish.
" - "It'll come back to you" - What? I'll be right back, Roque.
May I? Elena, at last.
I tried to call you several times, but It's back.
- What? - The coin.
It's come back.
It's on the table.
The double told me it would come back, and it has.
- Are you sure it's the same one? - Paco I'm scared.
Don't worry.
I'm coming.
Where you are? I'm I'm in Paris.
- Everything okay, sir? - Yes.
Shall I bring the lasagne now? No.
No, just the bill, please And take this away.
Take everything.
Elena! Elena! Elena! No, no Elena! Drive.
Shit What happened, Paco? What are you doing? Why didn't you come back? - Roque - Is he all right? I think he's dead.
What? But What happened? I don't know.
Shit What the hell is all this, Paco? - What the hell are you doing? - Well, I'm still here.
You're still alive because I didn't translate a word of what you said.
This doesn't work like that.
There's no possibility of dialogue.
Admit everything they accuse you of and be quiet.
- Why have you helped me? - Don't get any ideas, Father.
I hate everything you represent.
That's why I'm here, to fight and die for something that's worthwhile.
All this isn't like you imagined it, is it? Nothing is like you imagine it.
But one second of truth is better than a lifetime of lies.
One second, yes.
You take a knife and you cut the throat of someone with a bag over their head.
The thing gets complicated when you have to do it again and again.
- It gives you time to think.
- Do you dare give lessons in justice? All this was caused by people like you, who spout pretty words and look the other way, when there are thousands of deaths.
- Is that all you wanted to tell me? - There are two other prisoners.
A journalist and a woman from an NGO.
The three of you will be executed tomorrow, at dawn.
Guys, that has to be removed now.
Please! Tomorrow we have the baptism and all this has to be cleared.
- Merche, sweetheart! - Merche, love! - How are you, honey? - As always, working.
Your husband's rally was a success.
Yes, well, it wasn't bad, I think we will win the elections.
Of course.
Everyone appreciates you very much.
- Sure - Listen.
We just wanted to tell you that you can count on us for whatever you want.
- You know that, don't you? - If you want to talk, we're here.
For the good and the bad.
If we don't support each other - Who else is going to do it? - Thank you.
When Remedios told me, I couldn't believe it.
Well, it isn't definite.
My husband has been working for a long time.
He's tired, that's all.
And because he's tired, he's gone and rented a room? - What room? - At the bar.
They have rooms upstairs that they rent out.
Is that what Remedios says? She says she saw your husband arrive with two suitcases.
- I don't know, it must be that - You don't have to explain anything.
And you're not the first to go through something like this.
There's an age when all men become idiots.
They get scared because they see they're getting old and they want to get back the time they've wasted.
He didn't waste his time with me, Consuelo.
- No, of course not, just the opposite.
- He hit the jackpot with you.
It's the same old story.
They can't see how good they have it at home.
Look, stop thinking about it.
What you have to do is focus.
Focus on what? Fix yourself up, go out on the street, look your prettiest.
Wear a new dress, put on some make up.
You never wear any What do you expect? She's always working.
You have to add fuel to the fire, Merche.
Stir up the embers a bit, or else, you know, they die.
Besides, and this isn't to leave here, but you-know-who is in Paris.
Puri told us, she cleans at the castle.
- She's with Roque.
- It's a good time to try it.
- You can't throw in the towel.
- Those two are having an affair.
And what's that got to do with my husband? Oh, look how late it is, and I haven't started making lunch yet.
- Anyway, Merche, look after yourself.
- We'll see you around.
My Lord Jesus Christ, I know that my life is in your hands.
Like Sandro's and so many others who have died defending this piece of wood.
What do you want from me? I get it.
I don't deserve your mercy.
I don't deserve your forgiveness.
Years ago, someone once told me that you enjoy our suffering.
I was offended.
However, now Ahmed? What are you going to do? What are you going to do? We don't need your happy face.
He's here! He's here! He's coming! - Nobody's coming, fuck! - He's coming! - Antonio, shut up! - He's here! He's here! He's arrived! Shut up! You're going to wake up the kid! He's here! He's coming! He's here! He's here! Come on! Shut up! He's coming! He's here! - Antonio! - He's here! Put that away.
What do you think you're doing? - Antonio - At your service.
It's very late.
Who are you waiting for? - The new priest.
- Is a new priest coming? The other one left.
There's no mass.
Now you have to go to Sepúlveda.
But they called the Bishop of Segovia and asked for a new one.
Those crutches You had an accident, didn't you? No, it wasn't an accident.
I jumped off the bell tower.
- Why? - They told me to do it.
- Who? - The voices.
I see - You know everyone here, don't you? - I was born here.
How about if you come with us and talk for a while? I can't, I have to wait for the new priest.
And if we buy you a coffee? With churros? - There are no churros.
- A bacon sandwich then.
Antonio, what's going on in this town? What do you mean? Strange things, deaths, - disappearances - Everything going on here is normal.
Is it true that the people in the town set fire to the vet's clinic? - I didn't.
I wasn't there.
- But do you know who was there? - Everyone but me.
- And why did they do it? Because the priest asked them to.
Vergara asked them to burn the clinic? No Not the real priest.
His reflection in the mirror.
The priest, the mayor and the vet were on the other side.
When they came out of the mirror, they couldn't do anything.
They'd already burned it all.
I understand.
And what were they doing on the other side of the mirror? First, they sent a child who was a spider to scare them.
But it was no use.
She's very brave.
Then, they tried with a girl.
The one who disappeared.
They couldn't convince him either.
Who? - The priest.

Now they just want to kill him.

The one who jumped into the dam was someone else.
Who? A scarecrow.
Fuck He's here! He's here! He's arrived! He's here! He has arrived! He's here! Look at him.
Poor thing.
He's here! He's coming! We have to persuade him to come down.
He's injured, he could fall.

You're fucking kidding.
He's here! He's coming! He's here! He's arrived! What is he carrying? Good evening.
I apologize for the delay.
The car broke down a mile from here.
I had to walk.
But who are you? I'm the new priest.
I've been sent by the Bishop of Segovia.
