This second film musical starring 60's Spanish singer Raphael and the second of three films directed by Spanish director Mario Camus is a watchable and enjoyable film, although not quite as good as Raphael's first starring film, CUANDO TU NO ESTAS. Rahael plays a popular singer who suffers a nervous breakdown that adversely affects his career and makes him lose his popularity. But with the help of a devoted female secretary(who secretly loves him), Raphael makes a comeback. The film tries to be something more than a usual musical vehicle for Raphael but the plot has too many psychological overtones and Raphael is more a singer than a serious actor. But the film has great songs and score by Raphael's best composer, Manuel Alejandro and is well directed by director Camus.
