One of the most memorable films of director José María Forqué
This film is confirmation of the good work and the good work of its director an excellent director of actors. One of the films for which even today is remembered more José María Forqué is undoubtedly this "Amanecer En Puerta Oscura" with a great performance by Francisco Rabal in the character of a nineteenth century Andalusian bandit, The film holds an invoice which shows the good office of Forqué, and became a big hit in its day to present, perhaps, an updated parable of the "good thief" from the Christian tradition, where one of the defendants is pardoned by "Jesus El Rico" in which the figure of this arm indicates the prisoner rid of his sentence.
The film has an excellent staging, and extraordinary outdoor predominate throughout the film and today allow the viewer to indulge in wonderful landscapes of southern Spain seen in 1957.
Here is the good hand at work especially Paco Rabal not to mention the rest of the cast where no actor at odds. In some unusual scenes at the time, it there was probably censorship problems. The film won a deserved award in Berlin where certified the quality work.
