Storyline

En este "remake" de Recluta con niño (1955) tenemos a Miguel Cañete, un rústico pueblerino de la localidad de Viñuela. Para su disgusto, Miguel es llamado al servicio militar por la Marina de San Fernando, debiendo acudir a filas sin remisión, ya que agotó todas las prórrogas posibles. El problema es que no tiene con quién dejar a Quique, su hermano pequeño. Se compromete con Jacinta, una paisana, simplemente para que ésta cuide de Quique a cambio de la promesa de casarse con ella cuando él termine el servicio. Pero Quique se siente muy mal entre aquellas personas y se escapa de polizón en el tren en el que viaja su hermano. Cuando llegan a San Fernando, lo único que se le ocurre a Miguel es dejar a Quique en casa de la única persona de la familia que vive allí: la tía Enriqueta, la cual ahora se codea con "gente importante" y lo que menos desea es tener a dos "pueblerinos" yendo y viniendo a su casa.

Good remake. Not better nor worse than the original, but different.

We could call this film 'a time-updated remake of Recluta con niño (1956)'. Basically, we find just the same elements in both films, but there are several different points:

- This film is filmed in color, while the former one was in black and white.

- The place where the plot is developed is the Navy, while in the former one it was the Air Forces.

- In the flight scene, a helycopter has replaced the former plane.

- The actors are different: Alfredo Landa plays the former role of José Luis Ozores, José Gálvez plays Manolo Morán's, Laly Soldevila plays María Isbert's, Florinda Chico plays Julia Caba Alba's...

All in all, it's a film worth the time spent to watch it. It's funny, moving and entertaining. Of course, Spanish viewers will enjoy it best.

My rating: 7 out of 10.
