Although I am a fan of Raphael Martos's musical career, this film "El ANGEL" is the weakest and worst of all 7 films Raphael starred in throut the mid sixties to the early 70's. First of all, there is no songs from regular Raphael composer, Manuel Alejandro contrary to the first 4 Raphael films(CUANDO TU NO ESTAS, AL PONERSE EL SOL, DIAN LO QUE DIGAN & EL GOLFO) which had great songs composed by Manuel Alejando for Raphael. The songs written for Raphael in this film are lackluster compared to Raphael's previous 4 films(except maybe for the songs Corazon, Corazon & Vive Tu Vida) Also the plot is weak and Raphael is totally miscast as a criminal mastermind/cabaret owner who becomes a priest when his girl played by Anna Gael( who starred in Radley Metzger's THERESE & ISABELLE) is killed by rival gangsters. Raphael doesn't look the part and is much more comfortable playing the priest role. Also both Anna Gael and Mexican comedian Hector Suarez are both wasted in their roles in this film
