Interesting film version of the Zarzuela.
9 April 2010 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

"Francisquita",( Mirtha Legrand), loves to "Fernando" (Armando Calvo), in secret, but he has fallen in love with another woman, "Aurora La Beltrana" (Emma Penella), a temperamental girl of Madrid, accustomed to flirt with many men. Of the life of "Fernando" is very learned his good friend "Cardona" (Antonio Casal), which decides help "Francisquita", increasing the entanglement increasingly.

The great director Vajda offers us this film with a great security very usual in him, seeking an item lyrical music, as constitute adaptations of works created for the stage, of the Zarzuela Amadeo Vives and Federico Romero and Guillermo Fernandez Shaw, and of the comedy of Joaquín Calvo Sotelo.

We have to admire the laborious work that the scriptwriters Jose Santugini and Jose Luis Colina made with the booklet that has been widely recognized and puts the adaptation as one of the most interesting versions films of the genus lyric Spanish.

Splendid cast of actors with Manolo Morán, Julia Lajos, Antonio Casal, Enma Penella, Jose Isbert, Antonio Riquelme, Armando Calvo… that enhances and encourages the vision of this film, realized with a technical indigenous color "Cinefotocolor" of Daniel Aragonés, which puts high intensity in the colors, which mainly in the scenes end of the carnival reflects much beauty.
