A masterpiece of Ladislao Vadja
28 April 2009 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

Jacinto (Antonio Vico) is a former matador of bulls long ago withdrawn, who lives with his small nephew "Pepote"(Pablito Calvo), when he receives a letter reminding that needs to be submitted in a bullfight that is going to hold. Jacinto believes he is a joke, and was furious, until that collecting cigarette butts of cigars with his nephew in the vicinity of the Bullring of "Las Ventas" sees that it is true that he figure in the cartel that announced the following bullfight. Thus begins a film that Spanish must be among the best of Spanish cinema. Throughout the history that account in the film is very well taken. The scenarios in which develops the indent show a Madrid in the 1950 where he also lived all kinds of small robbers, street vendors, and a whole host of characters that are emerging in the movie, acting to perfection. The central Character "Jacinto" is interpreted by Antonio Vico in a way formidable, can be said that the character is done to his measure. And "Pepote" his nephew, interprets splendidly Pablito Calvo, without detract nothing proceedings very good in other films as "Marcellin Pan y Vino", and "Un angel pasó por Broocklýn". Appear in this film as actors secondary characters such as José Isbert, that is one of the major actors in the Spanish cinema, and humorists as Miguel Gila and Luis Sanchez Pollack. The director Ladislao Vadja succeeds in this film a great achievement, managing perfectly to the actors and taking advantage of them the best of his performance, with a magnificent photography of Enrique Guerner . I place this film of Ladislao Vadja among the best in the Spanish cinema
