Disturbing killer superbly played by Sancho Gracia.
7 August 2015 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

First episode of the series themed "La Huella Del Crimen", produced by Pedro Costa Muste for TVE in 1985 and consists of six separate episodes together.

This series is a television quality above the mean of today. Based on a rugged true story, it tells us the life of a cocky guy named "Jarabo" which was involved in a terrible, violent murder. The romance that he had with an English lady only created problems for both: jeopardized her marriage and he went bankrupt, having spent a fortune in hotels, dinners and gifts. Suffocated by lack of money, "Jarabo" had asked her a diamond ring that had immediately determined. But she, the only woman he had loved, she demanded the jewel, claiming that it was a gift from her husband. To recover, "Jarabo" choose the worst ways.

Sancho Gracia plays the criminal in an impressive way, with a different quality and registration, as well the previous review, seems possessed by the character image to the general public, Sancho Gracia is "Jarabo".

The cast of supporting actors is very good, suffice to say that an employee of the cleaners are hired Manolo Sarzo. This chapter makes a very unsettling feeling to which we attend to it, so you have to admire the work of Juan Antonio Bardem in the way they tell the story and create a terrible atmosphere.

The reconstruction of events is superb; from the beginning of the case in which the police is lost, the police inspector (Jose Manuel Cervino) command to the explanation of the four murders he was charged behind this specialist to deceive people of Madrid with a lot of personalities.

In addition, the flashback is very well managed without causing confusion to the viewer, possibly by the professionalism of Bardem when using those resources. Maybe is a bit forced to discover how the author of the crimes, but the episode is great because delves into the psychology of the protagonist, on the grounds that will propel you to kill...
