The director Luis Lucia offers an excellent adaptation of the novel by Armando Palacio Valdés
18 January 2011 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

"Gloria"(Carmen Sevilla), and "Ceferino"(Jorge Mistral), are two antithetical characters. He is a doctor Galician, serious and straight, while Gloria is one of the most beautiful women and rich Andalusia, outgoing, versatile and dominant. However, Gloria takes a surprising decision: to become a nun. By chance do you go for an individual who is director of the hospital Dr. Ceferino.

The novel takes place in Spain around 1870, and is written in first person. It's one of the best and most popular novels Armando Palacio Valdés. It is entertaining, funny, neatly written, flawless composition, rich in beautiful and accurate descriptions of festivals, bullfights, "cante flamenco", "patios" and bars of Seville, the Guadalquivir and its surroundings, all full of light and colour. Its greatest charm lies in the simplicity of its plot and in the absence of religious issues, although the issue might be tempted to do so.

The film has a good performance by its two stars, Carmen Sevilla and Jorge Mistral. And a nice photography that makes us enjoys an entertaining film.
