This comedy tells the story of a humble-country man who wins a fortune in football pools. He has to leave his small village to come to the big city, to get the money. Suddenly, he will find that girls who overlooked him are willing to marry him.
You may find it so very corny. But never mind the old fashioned it may look, just watch it, considering this is a Spanish comedy. Perhaps it is hard for a non-Spaniard to understand this kind of humour - as it's hard for a Spaniard to understand Mr. Bean's humour, but for those who have enjoyed Torrente, and who know a little bit about life in villages in late 60's and 70's, may find this satiric glimpse at their uses very entertaining and realistic.
Alfredo Landa's performance is fair. Perhaps he was not the actor to perform Hamlet, but it seems this role was made for him. Cast also includes Florinda Chico and aristocrat Jaime de Mora y Aragón.
