Disappointing and mediocre comedy starring Miguel Gila and Marujita Diaz
11 February 2011 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

It's a comedy from director Juan Llado, with M. Gila, María Martin and Armando Moreno in the lead roles. They are also Estanis González and Marujita Díaz. The story and screenplay are by Miguel Gila and Juan Lladó, and the direction of the latter. Miguel Gila drawings produced titles. With a name of a fairy tale presents this mediocre comedy, starring a couple as well known, failed, as formed by comedian Miguel Gila, who also co-wrote the script and the actress and singer Marujita Diaz The film abounds in situations absurd little comedy and was forced for the penultimate production directed by Juan Llado. Miguel Gila retains his humor in the gesture but the plot situations and dialogues are disappointing, and the whole film should be described as mediocre, and causes a disappointment after seeing other Gila films as "El hombre que viajaba despacito".

Besides working on the scripts of "El ceniciento" and "El hombre que viajaba despacito " Gila took part in the 1979 animated film "Historias de amor y masacre", directed by Ha (Jordi Amorós), written Gila, Chumy Chúmez, VAT and Jaume Perich, with pictures of all of them.

He began his work as a cartoonist for "La Exedra '", a magazine published in Salamanca by a group of college to the years 1943 and 1944 and, later, in "La Codorniz" and "Hermano Lobo", but according to his autobiography The breakthrough came in 1951 when he performed in Madrid and spontaneous "Fontalba" theater, where it was an improvised monologue about his experience as a volunteer in a war. In the 1950' he acted on the radio.

In 1968, Gila went into exile to escape unrecognized paternity, taking up residence in the city of Buenos Aires Argentina. There he started a theater company and the satirical magazine "La Gallina" is also noted for his one-man performances on "Saturday Circulars. " He toured throughout Latin America, including Venezuela, where he participated in the comedy "Radio Rochela" on Radio Caracas Television, invited by Tito Martínez del Box, and since 1977 also toured Spain. He returned to Spain in 1985.
