classic Spanish film
16 January 2006 | by (Barcelona, Spain) – See all my reviews

A gang of thieves with a good heart are going to do their biggest robbery, because they are going to steal a very valuable necklace from a rich family. Curiously, one of them fells in love with the daughter of the rich men, so the plan must change, in a laughing way... This movie is a comedy in a classic way, that sometimes reminds "the pink panther" (Peter Sellers movie was made some years after this one) in the absurd of the humour. It is pleasant to watch, and the actors are quite good. The story, though typical, is not bad, but a little too mixed to follow: you can't distract if you want to catch everything. Possibly one of the best Spanish films before the 60's (Well, this is not difficult, thinking about the quality of the cinema of that time). Nowadays, this humour is a little archaic, but it is funny.
