An interesting José María Forqué's film with very good actors.
"Hector" you drive with "Luisa", the road linking Madrid and Barcelona. When another car unexpectedly cross your path, your vehicle runs off the road and plunges into a tree. "Hector" dies and she is seriously injured. The other car was occupied by "Jorge" and "Paula", his lover. Several vehicles cross before the car accident and do not stop, each for a different reason. Among them is "Julio", a truck driver who does not stop on time to your destination, knowing that in that car accident was his girlfriend.
José María Forqué directed this interesting film, in which we will highlight two main actors: Carlos Estrada whose real name was Jorge Otero Logares Demetrio. He began his career playing theater in Argentina. In 1961 he moved to Spain where he did his most important role in "Aunt Tula" (1964) by Miguel Picazo. In the sixties he returned to Argentina where he continued working as an actor in both film and theater. Among other films starred in "Accident 703", "Song of Youth", "Plaza de Oriente", "double-edged Crime", "Lovers of Verona", "Lola dark mirror" ...
Julia Gutiérrez Caba began in films in 1960 with Juan Antonio Bardem in "At five in the afternoon." For this character won the Sant Jordi a year later. After playing, among other films, "Accident 703" (Performing Association Award in 1962), "The Great Family" and "Nothing ever happens", to name a few, focused on theatrical activity, temporarily away from celluloid, which return to "light wound" (1997), by José Luis Garci. With Garci also worked on "You're the one", for which he won the BAFTA for Best Supporting Actress in 2000. In 2010 he participated in "Julia's Eyes" by Guillem Morales.
"Accident 703" is a coral film showing a day in the life of a number of characters that will be involved to a greater or lesser degree in the death of a man. It is a film with moralistic zeal but with some logic. It is one of the most attractive and unique films of Spanish cinema with tremendous force at visual and aesthetic value unlimited. It harmed only by the stroke of some unlikely characters.
It is a film of "thesis" as that term was understood at the time it was made. Several characters who pass by when a tragic car accident will star as many stories. The presiding outdated moral sense development vainly tries alleviated with an episode with more or less humor.
