WHAT DOES THE END OF “BAJOCERO” MEAN?
From the beginning the Spanish film makes it clear that it is about revenge and as it progresses some mysteries are revealed, such as the identity of the executor and his prey, how far he is willing to go, and finally Miguel’s motivations.
Although Martín, Miguel and Nano are the protagonists of “Bajocero”, The rest of the prisoners also play an important role and their stories are never neglected. The film begins in an intense way and ends in the same way.
On the other hand, Martín is the one that evolves the most, since from the beginning he makes it clear that he is used to following the rules and laws, even defending one of the prisoners when his partner becomes violent.
However, in the end he re-evaluates his position and goes against his principles to help Miguel, a father who only wants to find the body of a daughter. In the film there are several elements that can contribute to the policeman’s decision, such as the fact that he is the father of two girls or even the story of Rei, who left the man who raped her sister in a coma, but it was undoubtedly the mockery and Nano’s look that made him act.
