This is the first and best in my opinion of the Spanish musical films starring Spanish singing sensation, Raphael in his first starring role and the first of 3 Raphael film musicals directed by Mario Camus, who would be one of Spain's top film directors in the 1970's. The film is slightly autobiographical in the film's first half which Raphael playing himself, is trying to find fame and fortune as a popular singer in Spain until he teams up with an up and coming Spanish composer( whose character is based on Raphael's real life composer and musical collaborator, Manuel Alejandro) which helps him become a popular singer in Spain, But then the film goes into LOVE STORY territory when Raphael meets a young girl named Laura, who harbors a deep dark secret which isn't revealed until the film's bittersweet ending. But anyone who has seen films like LOVE STORY, will guess the tragic outcome of the romance between Raphael and his leading lady, Margaret Peters way before the movie ends. But the film has Raphael performing great songs (written by Manuel Alejandro) in his own inimitable style and this film is especially recommended to all of Raphael's fans.
