Lolita's Club

Canciones de amor en Lolita's Club is a 2007 Spanish film written and directed by Vicente Aranda and starring Eduardo Noriega and Flora Martínez. The plot follows the story of twin brothers — one a coldhearted violent police officer, the other a helpless romantic with a mental disability. The two brothers are tragically involved with a prostitute who works in the bordello that gives the film its title. The film was adapted from the novel Canciones de Amor en Lolita's Club written by Juan Marsé.

Plot

Raúl Fuentes, a brooding police officer prone to violence and alcohol, is placed on unpaid leave after he has beaten Moncho Tristán, the son of a local drug trafficker. Mazuera, a snitch from a drug mafia ring, tells Raúl that members of the drug clan are looking for him to kill him. Mazuera strikes a deal with Raúl. He would give him some documents that prove the involvement of the Tristán family in drug trafficking and prostitution if Raúl agrees to reveal the story only after Mazuera has left the country. Raúl decides to leave the incident on hold and travels from Pontevedra to Alicante where his family lives.
