It's good work by Rafael Gil
29 March 2012 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

The film is based on the tradition that emerged years ago to take their First Communion in a white suit, which is assumed in the film which was a trend that began in Madrid. "Marcos" is not to be less and decide you do not take his First Communion if not wearing a suit as nice as his friend "Polonio," as he promised his mother shortly before she died. To do this, you gain time by delaying the time, and so get money to buy the suit.

This film is a social drama in a childlike spirit of the sub-genre typical post-war Spanish cinema: the cinema of tenderness, pity and emotion, especially with children as protagonists accentuating..

Its story is motivated by a real case that shocked the public: the murder of Maria Goretti Italian girl on her way of catechesis to prepare for First Communion later canonized. In this film, with a much less tragic script, and located in a city of Castile "Marcos" notes "Polonio" with envy as his father, who is poor can not buy a suit so nice to celebrate this special day .

It's good work by Rafael Gil, which can highlight scenes with dialogue so great and tender as the "Marcos" to the guard of the factory, or scenes as bleak as the brother of "Marcos" lying to get the money.
