A title to claim the work of the great Neville.
psagray from Spain
16 November 2012
Neville, extraordinary director with titles as "La Torre de los siete
jorobados" 1944, "El crimen de la Calle Bordadores" 1946, "El Marqués
de Salamanca" 1948, "El ultimo caballo" 1950 ... rehearsed comedy
episodes, and does so without doubt one of his best films, perhaps the
funniest, the most it comedy at its best. Is full of light humor,
manners and healthy. The second episode, looser than the others, is not
signed by French filmmaker Lefrauc individual.
The episodes presented by Pedro Porcel describe Interest Introduction
to Film shots of streets, squares, bars and bullring "Cosos".
The theme of the film is how it changes the lives of people to find by
chance, a lot of money. The first episode is great, full of grace and
an Andalusian humor Spacious, light and where Fernan Gomez again shows
his talent for comedy, the second episode is the less fun and more
convoluted, the subtraction algorithm which coherence to Neville
triptych, the third episode is the best, hilarious and brilliant, a
little masterpiece, with an memorable, delicious and great mourning
companies Actors Antonio Vico and Irene Caba Alba, the Fourth is
downright fun to work effective and Antonio Casal and Rafael Alonso.
The true value of this film is a Time Travel (50 years before), through
the streets of two beautiful Spanish cities: Seville (The Royal Tobacco
Factory, The Portugal Pavilion, Golden Tower, La Giralda ... ) and
Salamanca (the facade of the University, the Plaza Mayor, the
Cathedral, the Convent of San Esteban ...), in addition to a fun tour
"castiza" culture: flamenco, wine, women, picaresque, bulls and art ,
lots of art...
