Just married " Elisa " and " Ramon" , the winning couple "Espumín" a contest sponsored by a famous detergent. All goes well until, on their honeymoon , someone hiding in the trunk of the corpse bride "Don Aquiles Papillon ", a scientist. Among "Ramon" and the head of advertising, try by all means to dispose of the body without anyone noticing , but the dead always returns.
Sympathetic 1962 film starring the brilliant Fernando Fernan - Gomez, for "Gila" pretty weak in cinematographic issues ( except when talking on the phone) and a lovely French actress Claude Arnorld, making Spanish woman.
These simple stories in black and white mostly, with a sense of humor almost "Naif", are the most entertaining ; films to claim that, incidentally, portrayed society a few years today, from a distance, imagine demonic, dark, unspeakable . That's good to take a look at the documents of the time, in real time, to discover the secrets and latent culture of a country and its historic moment .
One thing to note is the portrait of the Spanish woman named "Elisa" . A loving , tender, innocent and extremely large gaps in the cultural field , but a hot temper girl, showing great self-confidence , higher self esteem , which is to maintain its position, even being willing to leave their husband married the first day. That comes back with her mother, who slams the door in her face, who gets angry, who yells if necessary ... A contradiction of the submissive woman reflect the chronicles of those years.
Ideologies aside, some gags are well made . Personally, I can not smile off from the face, and a scene will start to laugh. To me, it's the road and try to get rid of the trunk the best . That ingenious, really.
