Some observers detected the influence of Orson Welles' Citizen Kane in Carlos Borcosque's innovational Yo Conoci Esa Mujer (I Knew That Woman) The plot revolves around a popular musical star (Libertad Lamarque) who is held responsible for the death of her husband. Also considered culpable is the doctor who attended the dying man, inasmuch as he was in love with the singer. When doctor and singer are wed, it causes a scandal of major proportions, one which has wide-ranging repercussions on the couple's physically handicapped son. Conventional enough in terms of story and characterizations, Yo Conoci Esa Mujer is chock full of bizarre camera angles and lengthy deep-focus "takes," which seem to have been as much influenced by the German silents as by Citizen Kane.
