The term frenzy It comes from the Latin phrenēsis (“delirium”), whose origin dates back to a late Greek word. The concept allows to refer to the agitation or jolt of mood, yet state of excitement or exacerbation, or to a certain kind of delirium.
The frenzy is associated with a impulse that cannot be contained or interrupted. Its meaning, however, varies according to the context. For the psychiatry, the frenzy is linked to a mental state of confusion generated by an agitation. For example: “When he saw the corpse of his mother and a prisoner of the frenzy, he began to beat the intruder to death”, “He did his best to resist but ultimately failed: the man succumbed to the stimuli and surrendered to frenzy”.
The frenzy is also related to the enthusiasm: “Gabriel danced in a frenzy throughout the night and woke up with a great headache”, “Andrea moved in a frenzy, as if trying to shed something that was disturbing her”.
We cannot ignore that in the musical field there is a song entitled “Frenzy” that has managed to become one of the most listened to pieces in history. The Mexican composer Alberto Domínguez Borrás was the one who made this cha-cha, which has had many versions around the world.
Cliff Richard, Frank Sinatra, Ray Charles, Plácido Domingo or Los Panchos are some of the interpreters who have included different but equally emotional versions of this song in their record works.
“Frenzy” It is also the Spanish title of “Frenzy”, a suspense film that features the direction of Alfred Hitchcock and the role of Alec McCowen, Jon finch Y Barry foster. It is a film based on a novel from Arthur La Bern (“Goodbye Piccadilly, Farewell Leicester Square”) which was released in 1972.
“Frenzy” takes place in London. A criminal who is known as The Killer with the Tie it frightens the city. Richard Blaney He becomes the main suspect when, after a public fight with his ex-wife, she appears strangled. However, the man is unjustly imprisoned as he is innocent.
However, in the cinematographic field, it must be emphasized that the aforementioned Hitchcok film is not the only one that has used the term frenzy. Thus, within the history of Spanish cinema we can highlight the production entitled “More than love frenzy.”
It was in 1996 when this film was released, which was jointly directed by three directors of great significance such as David Menkes, Alfonso Albacete and Miguel Bardem. The acting cast, meanwhile, was led by Nancho Novo, Íngrid Rubio, Cayetana Guillén Cuervo and Gustavo Salmerón, among others.

This fact will bring with it the breakdown of their friendship, infidelities, betrayals, new love relationships, sex, death and even the final recovery of that bond that united them.
