Storyline

In this near-noir by actor Arturo de Córdova's frequent director Roberto Gavaldón, millionaire Antonio Ituarte (de Córdova) gives his wife an unusual wedding gift: a life-sized statue of a kneeling, nude woman-secretly modeled by his lover, Raquel (María Félix). When the mistress demands that Antonio leave his wife, to whom misfortune then befalls, Antonio becomes the very figure of the tormented reprobate-both inflamed and disgusted by his obsession with Raquel.

Fine Spanish drama by excellent director Jose Antonio Nieves Conde
13 February 2009 | by See all my reviews

A couple(Arturo de Cordoba, Emma Penella)and their son arrive a hotel at city of Gijon. But the son suffers an accident on the edge of sea and he's drowned .The tragedy causes an immense pain and despair in the protagonists. Then the screenplay describes a flashbacks retelling a happenings plenty of twists plot and suspense.

Good acting by a very young Emma Penella and remaining cast.Highlights movie are the cinematography by Francisco Sempere and production design by Gil Parrondo(Oscar winner for Patton).This is a splendid film by Jose Antonio Nieves Conde, a director of great quality. He's a dramas expert(Surcos, El Inquilino), religious cinema(Balarrasa, Cotolay) and even terror(Sounds of horror). The movie was remade with the title ¨Hotel Danubio¨(2002) by Antonio Gimenez Rico and produced by Jose Luis Garci; starred by Santiago Ramos(Arturo De Cordoba's role) and the Rocio Durcal's daughter, Carmen Morales(Emma Penella's role).
