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.

Interesting Spanish tale with fine performances
13 March 2009 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

This Jose Antonio Nieves Conde film is a good story which packs an intelligent tale about deceits and lies. It concerns a mature man played by the Mexican actor Arturo De Cordoba and a young women well performed by the recently deceased Emma Penella. They go a Hotel of Asturias with his son, when he's suddenly drowned. Then the story changes and emerge several problems, tragedies an thought-provoking drama. Nice acting by the veteran Arturo De Cordoba , a beautiful Emma Penella and Felix Dafauce as Police Inspector. Adequate photography Francisco Sempere, evocative musical score by Miguel Arbo and appropriate sets by Gil Parrondo. This is a cool Spanish film from the 5os finely directed by Jose Antonio Nieves Conde,who filmed another good movie: Don Lucio and Hermano Pio.
