Double indemnity? More like double line spacing.

Double Indemnity or as it’s called in Mexico ‘Perdicion’ is a 1940’s film noir movie about an insurance scam where a wife bumps off her husband.I messed up while downloading this film.I went to play it and it was over dubbed in Mexican with no subtitles.So i downloaded some subs and the third ones were in sync.For Double Indemnity the subs were really fast with there being often 3-5 lines of text.The main character is an insurance salesman who works for a big firm.One day while he’s calling to the house of a client to renew their car insurance he encounters his young wife who has ideas of killing the husband.He says take a run and jump,but a few hours later when she calls to his house and he gets the ride then he’s all in.Manipulated or what?They formulate a pretty good plan for killing him and have some solid alibis.The plan goes off without a hitch and it all looks good.But as usual that’s not for long.The film is told as a flashback that only catches up to present time in the last 5 minutes,which i wasn’t expecting. I’m not sure if it’s a good version because of the dubbed/subtitled thing i watched was too taxing on the brain.
