Old Film love triangle older woman, younger woman.

I believe that this an old Spanish (?? maybe italian) film based on a true story. A young (unmarried) couple leave their small town for the big city. Because they are not married they live in different places. The young lady is also a virgin and religious. They both find work and the young man finds a job working with an older woman. Eventually the young man and the older woman become lovers and the woman sexually awakens the young man. The young lady senses that she is losing her boyfriend and in an act of desparation to save it she has sex with him. But because she is inexperienced this does nothing for young man. The older woman wants the young man to be her's and her's alone and she proposes that they run off together but that he needs to kill his girlfriend. When the young man attempts to kill his girlfriend to show how much she really loves him she kills herself for him. The movie ends with the young man running to the arms of the older woman but there is a caption that shows that they are later arrested.
