Storyline

In the early Spanish Civil Post-war, in Madrid, during the most hard times of the Franco dictatorship, a group of second-rate players try to get out of their wretched lives taking advantage of the artistic caprices of the son of a rich man who supports the regime. They try to stage a Pre-war 'zarzuela' (a sort of Spanish operetta), 'La Corte Del Faraón', which ironically, thirty years later, is too obscene for the regime censorship. They finally manage to perform the 'zarzuela' but end up in the police station where they confirm that justice depends on which side are you on Written by Paco Delgado <fdelgad@bib.upv.es>

brilliant
2 January 2004 | by (auckland, new zealand) – See all my reviews

I saw the movie in Madrid when it first premiered and I was amazed. Watched a few more times with friends of mine and all of us kept watching it and using lots of lines as a day to day issue. Also got hooked into Ana Belen's singing career. Very original story and great music (for the ones who love Zarzuela as I do).
