His destiny is forever changed by this fateful decision, as during his tour of the prison, an accident occurs that knocks him unconscious. He is rushed to the empty but visibly haunted walls of cell 211. As this diversion unfolds, inmates of the high security cell block strategically break free and hijack the penitentiary. Aware of the violence that is to come, the prison officers flee, leaving Juan stranded and unconscious in the heart of the riot. When Juan awakens, he immediately takes stock of the situation; in order to survive, he must pretend to be a prisoner. Juan develops a dialogue with the violent leader of the riot, Badass, and the two begin a partnership, Badass fully believing that Juan is a new inmate. Negotiations go smoothly until the rioters take three ETA (the militant Basque separatist organization) prisoners hostage. When this hits the news, it triggers a stream of prison riots throughout the country as well as demonstrations in the Basque Country. Juan quickly realizes that he is on his own as the situation becomes more politicized and the government gets involved, afraid of potential ramifications in the Basque community. As the drama heightens, unexpected shifts in character both within and without the prison occur.
Plot: The story of two men on different sides of a prison riot — the inmate leading the rebellion and the young guard trapped in the revolt, who poses as a prisoner in a desperate attempt to survive the ordeal.

Brilliant story about friendship, corruption, and codes that are more valuable and important than labels and uniforms.
Guerricaechevarria does it again, writing a brutal story of loyalty, friendship and guts.
The acting is great, well directed and well filmed. The characters are extremely real and believable.
In the end, everyone shows it’s real face. Ethics and Character are put in a first plane, leaving uniforms, social class, education and every possible label behind. For some, it’s every man for itself, and for others, it’s justice or death.
This movie is extremely violent but not at a physical level, and delivers pure emotions throughout it’s whole plot. It’ll keep you at the edge of your seat for two hours, and leave you thinking about it for days.
Great Spanish Jail Thriller
A Spanish thriller based on the eponymous novel by Francisco Pérez Gandul.
Cell 211 tells the story of a riot inside a dangerous ward, just when a new prison officer is having his introductory visit to the same. By chance, he sees himself locked in with the rioters and, to survive, he assumes, a new identity as a prisoner.
Although the story is not especially original, the characters and the script are very good, the situation is completely believable within the Spanish social and jail context, and the end is not as predictable as you might expect. Moreover, the movie is unpretentious and fresh, which makes it even more enjoyable.
The acting is very good by all the cast, but especially by Luis Tosar as Malamadre, by Alberto Ammann as Juan Oliveras, and Antonio Resines as Prison officer Utrilla.
A very entertaining Spanish thriller with very good acting, that won 8 Goyas (Spanish Oscars) in 2009.
