A mysterious murder well made into a film.
30 July 2015 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

Seventh of the thematic series "La Huella Del Crimen", produced by Pedro Costa Muste for TVE in 1985 and consists of six separate episodes together. In 1991 it was expanded with five more episodes and a movie, "Amantes" by Vicente Aranda The episode tells the murder of a luxury prostitute in Barcelona, in the late forties. Carmen Broto, a girl of humble origins, turned into luxury prostitute real erotic myth, it soon becomes well known in the city of Barcelona. Always walking arm Punishment famous businessman Juan Martinez, owner of the Tivoli theatre, happens to be his mistress, but is merely a cover, since he is an undercover homosexual.

Literary authors such as Juan Marse and film directors as Pedro Costa were inspired by this event. Marse was partially inspired for his book "Si Te Dicen Que Caí'.

But despite speculation later, the case was never clarified and assumptions about its true motivation are multifarious: homosexual jealousy, politics, drug trafficking...

The shadow of doubt about his death continues to plan and truth possibly never be disclosed. That girl from the provinces who came to the big city in search of fortune and found a merciless death unwittingly became a mythical figure of popular imagination.
