This was an Argentinian film from 1953 and directed by Román Viñoly Barreto. It is a remake of the classic Fritz Lang movie M and, in honesty, it isn’t a patch on that classic film – though it is a strong piece of cinema in its own right.
It begins with music over credits that seemed cheesy now and reminded me immediately that Lang’s film used sound in a way that was, frankly, mind blowing. And you know what, it is unfair to this film to be comparing and contrasting to Lang but, unfortunately, it feels impossible to do otherwise.
