Burning Body Review 2023 Tv Show Series Season Cast Crew Online
Now streaming on Netflix (released on 8th September 2023), this limited series, primarily in Spanish, delves into a harrowing tale inspired by true events. I opted for the English-dubbed version, providing a more familiar auditory experience.
At the heart of the story lies the brutal murder of a police officer, burned beyond recognition. Suspicion quickly narrows down to two other agents intricately connected to the deceased: his girlfriend and her secret lover. What unfolds is an intricate web of relationships, motives, and dark secrets, further emphasized by the real-life recordings featured in “Rosa Peral’s Tapes”, which Netflix has made available concurrently.
Úrsula Corberó, whom many might recognize as Tokyo from the hit series “Money Heist” (2017-21), takes center stage, portraying Rosa Peral. Her performance is stellar; she excels in capturing the essence of a character battling internal tumult. Her controlled demeanor and ability to convey raw emotion without overt theatrics only amplify the suspense. Admittedly, it was her reputation from “Money Heist” that drew me to “Burning Body” in the first place.
Though the pacing is deliberate, every scene drips with tension. Every character is masterfully fleshed out, carrying layers of depth and mystery. The meticulously crafted storyline, paired with a contemplative ending, solidifies “Burning Body” as a gem within the ‘Dark Crime Thriller’ genre. The fact that this tale mirrors real-life events only adds to its allure.
Despite its merits, I did find the series occasionally languid, docking a star for the same. However, for those with a penchant for gripping narratives and real-life mysteries, “Burning Body” is an absolute must-watch.
