Brilliant satire
12 August 2003 | by (St Andrews, Scotland (U.K.)) – See all my reviews

This brilliant satire on Spanish values and propaganda of the early fifties was the only film co-directed by Bardem and Berlanga when they left the national film school. It was actually made in 1951 but was not distributed until 1953, following the success of ¡Bienvenido Mr Marshall! which they co-scripted.
