Daniel Monzón was born in Palma, Balearic Islands, Spain. His films as director include Heart of the Warrior (99), The Biggest Robbery Never Told (02), The Kovak Box (06) and Cell 211 (09).
This electrifying prison drama follows a guard knocked unconscious when a riot breaks out on his first day at work. He must thereafter pretend to be an inmate—and befriend charismatic convict leader Malamadre (Luis Tosar). Cell 211 was a box office smash and a big winner at the Goyas, including Best Actor for Tosar.
