Hard and Dramatic film about the survival of a company of comedians.
4 February 2013 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

The story, which is a precedent of "Viaje a ninguna parte" 1986 (F.Fernán Gomez), tells the miseries of the comedy troupe during the fifteen days prior to Holy Saturday. Sueiro trace radiography company of actors in one voice: "Sometimes we come to a town like this and know that there will be no celebration because we have come and we are the puppeteers, or comedians, or Gypsies, or the circus, or the comic ... as whatever they want to call. " And later returns to the theme: "We are comedians, puppeteers, phonies. That's our job. This is our profession. The tent is not a business but a way of life. We do not work to get rich or famous, work to eat, but do not eat very often". It's a diagnostic same or very similar to performing the role of "Tina" (Margarita Lozano), in the film adaptation when in a former comrade in arms of "Rogelio"(Fernando Leon) are invited to eat with his family.

"Los Farsantes", is production number 73 shot in IFI Studies. (Ignacio F. Iquino) that was produced from the late forties and over the years formed a stable of writers and even a modest star system in "El Paralelo" of Barcelona. Always attentive to the demands of the public, opted for the crazy comedy, melodrama by religious and especially by the police, as later devoted himself to the western European and Hispanic erotic cinema. His relationship with Mario Camus is his approach to the new wave inspired from the Administration that premium to recent graduates of the Official Film School.

The script is the work of Daniel Sueiro and Mario Camus. Both have undertaken adaptation of the novella Sueiro, "La Carpa", which has won in 1958 the Prize "Café Gijón" and serve as Camus film debut.

Otherwise the beginning and ending are some fidelity to the novel in its translation to the screen. The Company comedy "Don Pancho" (the voice actor and extraordinary voice doubler José María Ovies), is composed seven men and three women, and takes permanent touring repertoire consists of "Genevieve de Brabant", "Passion" and probably apocryphal "Orphan of Paris" and "Vanity and misery." Moreover, the differences with the novel are remarkable. It used the wake of one of the actors to open the film, "Rogelio" is a comrade in arms-which reveals the presence of the Civil War as a backdrop permanently, then runs off with the collection and above all, we introduce the episode of spree "Señoritos", in which "Tina" (Margarita Lozano) is required to make a pathetic strip tease.

The Holy Week of Valladolid, serves Sueiro and Camus to give a tragic ending to "Los Farsantes". The components of the Company of comedy of "Don Pancho" end dying of hunger, while outside resonate processional. We assume that because of censorship, which in the novel is a brothel Sueiro, translation becomes the film on the floor of the lover "Ramon".

"Justo" (Luis Ciges), opens and closes the film. At first rises in the economic ladder because it takes care of the costumes and sets, which the deceased had before. When "Don Pancho" asked them not to worry, that everything will go well from that time, declares: "Lies. Nothing has changed. Everything remains the same. At least we will not deceive, "a phrase that sums up the feelings of the characters.
