    Abstract:
    Spanish abstract: Dos hombres en lados opuestos de la ley están infiltrados —en la Policía y en la mafia— pero hierven la violencia y la sangre derramada cuando la información sale a la luz, y se envía a cada topo a averiguar quién es el enemigo interior. 'Infiltrados' es una película de Martin Scorsese que explora la 'paradoja del espía', a saber: que la identidad humana es un constructo basado en la interpretación de un rol, y la identidad del espía, más de lo mismo. ___________________________________________________________________________________ English abstract: Two men on opposite sides of the law are infiltrated in the Police and in the mafia; violence and bloodshed are rife when the information comes to light, and both moles are charged with the mission of finding out who is the enemy within. Martin Scorsese's film 'The Departed' explores 'the spy's paradox', i.e. the paradox that human identity is a construct based on the performance of a social role, and so is the spy's identity.
