This chapter describes how the landscape reveals the constant oscillation between two forms of desire for association expressed through the breaking and restoring of law of the land. It considers Spanish thriller films: Alejandro Amenábar's Tesis, Rafael Monleón's La cuestión de suerte, and Patricia Ferreira's Sé quien eres. It also explains in detail the two films that suggest the trace of both the law and its breaking across space and place: La caja 507 and La voz de su amo. This chapter shows that Spain may be not be sharply defined, but remains always as a flickering presence in thrillers.

Keywords:   law of the land, landscape, Alejandro Amenábar, Tesis, Rafael Monlón, La cuestión de suerte, Sé quien eres, La caja 507, La voz de su amo, Patricia Ferreira
