A good drama of love
2 April 2010 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

In the Toledo dominated by the Napoleonic army code, the head of a guerrilla group "Fernando de la Cierva" (Gérard Landry), falls prisoner. His lady love "Inés" (Alida Valli), get their freedom in exchange for their wedding with the governor "Don Blas" (Pedro Armendariz). However, this suspicion that women with which it is going to marry continues to be with the guerrilla.

It is a good movie with a script based on the novel "El cofre y el aparecido" in which it sees the good work of its director Henri Decoin, and also Fernando Palacios, "La Gran Familia", "Tres de la Cruz Roja", "El día de los enamorados"… and assistant of direction in countless films.

The scenarios are authentic because they are boulders in places as well known as Alcázar of Toledo, Puente of Alcántara, Castillo de San Servando and various corners of historical old Toledo. It is a marvel views the scenes magnificently atmospheric in the early years of the nineteenth century.

The performance of the actors is very good, stressing the great beauty of the actresses Alida Valli, Francoise Arnoul and Marisa de Leza. It has bit actors with a splendid job as Jose Sepulveda, Jose Isbert, Manuel Requena, Felix Briones and Nati Mistral singing a beautiful ballad, while playing a gypsy.

Good photography of Michel Kelber, perfect music by J. Grunenwald. To highlight in the film is the first scenes at the cemetery, and scenes of action
