One of the best
11 June 2002 | by (Bristol, England) – See all my reviews

This movie is one of the best from Paco Martinez Soria. It brings me memories from the past, when I used to watch it at home, on a Saturday afternoon. It is a great movie that doesn't make you feel bored and it will make laugh until the end. Reflects the way of life in Spain of the beginning of the seventies/end of the sixties, when people used to emigrate to the big cities from the poor villages of "deep Spain", in order to find a job and get married, etc. Excellent movie!!
