Quiero vivir by Robert Wise( visu )

Die Darstellung eines amerikanischen Mordprozesses (1953) nach Gerichtsakten, Presseberichten und Interviews. Eine vorbestrafte Frau aus zwielichtigem Milieu gerät unter die Anklage, eine reiche Witwe ermordet zu haben, und wird, nicht zuletzt aus Voreingenommenheit des Gerichts, zum Tode verurteilt. Der gegen die Todesstrafe zielende, nuanciert inszenierte Film - mit provozierender Sachlichkeit zeigt er selbst die Hinrichtung in der Gaskammer - enthält sich jeden Kommentars. Susan Haywards hervorragende Gestaltung der tragenden Rolle verstärkt die ohnehin eindringliche Wirkung des Dramas. (Lexikon des internationalen Films 1999/2000, CD-ROM)
