Spanish film noir classic movie, praised by critics as one of the top ten Spanish films ever made. It’s a psychological thriller fueled by a remarkably intriguing premise

Ivón, a chorus girl, and Hugo, a failed writer, turn up at a provincial hotel on a stormy night. They have come from Madrid with Carlos, Hugo’s son, born nineteen years earlier after a casual affair. They decide to lean over the cliffs to look at the angry waves down below – and Carlos falls to his death.
