This is one of the funniest (and emotional) movies of Paco Martinez Soria. It reflects the way of life of the 1960's Spain, when most of the young people emigrated from the country side to the big cities to earn good money and create a family. It is a memorable film which, if you like the actor, I can guarantee you will enjoy.
