Drama of rancor and revenge really hard.
7 September 2013 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

"Karla" (Ingrid Bergman), the widow of an oil tycoon, returns to her hometown. Now that she is rich and powerful, she is proposed to take revenge on those who despised and, above all, the man who left her for another girl "George Miller" (Anthony Quinn).

Great and forgotten drama of Ingrid Bergman and Anthony Quinn. Bergman, already gained worldwide recognition when he worked with Rossellini on the 50, showing a talent for harrowing drama in Hollywood which was allowed to show just the tip of the iceberg. In "The Visit" is the absolute queen of the plot since her first appearance on screen, train down the back, rich and wealthy to the town where she was born and then she was repudiated, Ingrid Bergman crushes her former neighbors with her gaze. It's a memorable scene. Many aspects of the script and the treatment of the story and the music and the way you act, reminiscent of the productions that starred Bette Davis in the '60s, when the drama became more sharp, incisive and even morbid,

Once the film shows its evolution, the script becomes predictable and repetitive, and sequences occur leading to the inevitable end, despite all the interest just decays and both the film and the performance of Bergman and Quinn are enjoyed to the end . It is a highly recommended film.
