"Hay un camino a la derecha - There is a Path to the Right" is a black-market related crime drama set in a gritty Barcelona and its docks. It focuses on Miguel (Paco Rabal) and his circumstances, also using "street urchins" who were frequently included in urban films of the time, especially those dealing with the difficulties of the (un-)employment situation. Much of the film is shot on location, and thus visually chronicles the city in the early fifties this was in itself frowned on by the censors. The film is introduced with a typical moralistic voice-over, confirming the title's Biblical resonance, introducing with its flash-forward the resolution of the drama and emphasising the family values of the regime, which sets up the suspense of how will the plot get the spectators to its conclusion. This morality is however questioned by the harsh reality of the setting, Inspector Tormo's tie and suit, covering an over-sized and ill-fitting white shirt, and the excessive introduction. Both Rivera Boleta and Paco Rabal went on to make more films, implicitly critical of the Regime's values and the implementation of these values. The film is released on DVD by Filmax, but does not provide subtitles.
