Simpática!
29 March 2009 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

After 50 years, "Escuela de Música" becomes, from a light comedy with very popular songs in Latin America, in a document and example of what a "familiar movie" was back then in Mexico: some mockery, some situations to make you smile and a happy end. But this is probably the closest example of what a " musical super production" was, following the line of American movies. For Latin American music lovers is interesting due it features songs from different countries: Mexico -of course- (La Cumbancha, Estrellita, Alma Jarocha and Guadalajara, among others; Argentina (A media luz), Venezuela (Alma llanera), Cuba (El manicero) and Brazil (Aquarela do Brasil) sang in Portuguese --something quite rare in those days in Mexico, singing in other language. Lots of folkloric stylized dresses for shows and good orchestrations, some times filmed in b&w and some others in color -don't ask me why. Not an artistic jewel but a document of -more or less- how Mexican people sang, dressed and behave in those years. Simpatica!
