This must be the most enjoyable to see Marisol picture. Good edition, good songs. "Marisol rumbo a Rio" was made intended to set the end of Marisol's childhood. So we have the song "Muchachita". The plot is not really based in "The parent's trap", we have no parents to join here, and both sisters know the existence of each other before they met. There are spots of racism, of course, it was a common place in franquist Spain. Despite of it, there is lots of fun, a General Public must see for every researcher of the sixties hispanic cinema. The edition by José Antonio Rojo is another thumb up. Now, if something is not good in this movie, is the final scene. Some additional elaborations could have been appreciated. But this occasionally happens in good pictures (remember the tasteless final scene of the academy award musical "Oliver!").
