A film of a great quality directed by Julio Salvador
12 November 2009 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

A young man named Rafael is killed in the street opposite the Police Headquarters in Barcelona. Miguel and Marcial, of the Criminal Brigade, investigate the murder and are, in the room of the dead, a copy of "La Vanguardia". In the newspaper found indicated an announcement requesting a manager for a chemical company, through a strong bail, and with an indication of writing for more information to the Post 1001. With this discovery begin some difficult police inquiries that may lead to the arrest of the murderer.

Julio Salvador directs this film of noir cinema that surprised by its good narrative pulse, because to maintain the intrigue until the last scenes of the film. It is a movie that is out of the usual in the gender to be ran in the 1950 in Spain, is a great quality.

The main actors and make side all an excellent representation among which Conrado San Martin "Miguel," Elena Espejo "Carmen," Emilio Fabregas "the Commissioner Head" and Casimiro Hurtado "El Mirada"
