Tragedy takes place when Rodolfo (Rodolfo Acosta) kills Santiago and is then killed by Violeta.



Awards and nominations


Twitch Film felt the film would be a perfect match to be double-billed with Josef von Sternberg's Blonde Venus.[5]

Without imagining they were on the verge of securing international fame with the film cabaret series performed by Ninon Sevilla, the Calderon Brothers contracted to Emilio Fernández to direct this musical melodrama that would be more intense and exacerbated that Salón Mexico (1948), the previous raid of "El Indio" into the cabaret environments of the Mexican capital.

As in Salon Mexico, Victimas del Pecado demonstrated the joy of the director in a very particular direct scenes that take place in the cabaret. Also, the director does not hide his love of uplifting moral, nor can he avoid some moments of unintentional comedy as one in which the "Pachuco" Rodolfo Acosta shows his ability to speak more than one language while teaching him how to walk with style to a French prostitute. Despite its considerable shortcomings, Victimas del pecado has kept pace in the filmography of "El Indio" Fernández and the passage of time has not been treated so poorly. Figueroa's photography continues to be splendid and as representative of the filmography of Ninon Sevilla is important to note that the film won an unprecedented success in France and Belgium, where he was known as Quartier interdit (Forbidden Neighborhood or Hell's Kitchen).[6]

Ninon was unsurpassed as the flower that falls in the mud, the star that travels in rotten environments, even though she retains a heart of gold for delivery to a pariah, a hero or a stranger which a past unknown. Could be brave and help to her man, and betray to the gangster that had knocked on his networks. It could also infatuated with someone of the opposite sex, amazed at her honesty, and the love he feels for his adopted son. All this happens in Victimas del Pecado.[7]
