Have you read and watched these stories on the film’s site? http://theclinicmovie.com/theclinicmovie/truestories.html This should be enough, I think, to convince you. Because, if you think about it, taking things a step or two further, isn’t that big of a stretch. But before I go on, let me mention something else.
In Spain babies were being taken and given away, then later on sold for 40-50 years. At the very least thousands of babies were stolen. Doctors, nurses and of course the Church made it possible. At first it was part of the fascist dictatorship, then it became a huge business. Here are some links:
Now, compare this to the scenario in The Clinic. Is it really that hard to believe? The kidnappers only needed a few people in the right places to keep things quiet. Sure, they wen’t overboard, but they were either a bit crazy, or very smart. Because if they make the buyers a part of more than just kidnapping, it will make sure they won’t talk. And those people could’ve been desperate and/or gullible enough to believe in the test.

“I have to admit, I wasn’t expecting much going into this film. I hadn’t heard anything about it and the cover of the DVD, reminiscent of INSIDE, didn’t seem like it was very inspired. So color me shocked when I witnessed a really engrossing thriller unfold before me with not only a gripping premise, but fantastic performances to boot. THE CLINIC is one of those under-the-radar films you’re sure to stumble across on cable and wonder why you hadn’t heard of it before. Well, consider yourself warned because THE CLINIC is a film in need of being seen.
What I thought would be a by the numbers medical thriller turned out to be so much more. I won’t reveal anything else, but THE CLINIC pulls no punches and offers up characters you actually care for. Writer/director James Babbitts shows skill with the camera with gritty scenes of action along with surreal and unsettling fever dreams of the mother of a baby in a pool of blood. Not to be missed, THE CLINIC is so much more than one would expect.”
