Burning Body 2023 / A fiery Barcelona murder mystery unraveling the tangle of toxic relationships


Releasing a documentary and a mini-series on the same case on the same day, Netflix understands how compelling Rosa Peral’s story is. Burning Body dramatizes the case’s events, but it does so in a way that questions the police as an institution. With the case, it’s clear that the ones assigned to protect citizens from crimes are trained enough to hide their own.

With Money Heist’s Úrsula Corberó on the helm, Burning Body paints a double sided look of a multifaceted woman.
