A piece of garbage, a waste of time and a movie to forget
12 November 2003 | by (Chelsea, MA) – See all my reviews

This is probably one of the worst films of all time. Bad in all departments, it is an insult to the audience that certain people praise this mistake.

There is nothing good to rescue from this piece of trash. In comparison, any film directed by Enrique Carreras is much better.

Even though, the only good thing featured in this disaster is the Mariano Mores theme "Tanguera", which was better recorded in 1955 by the Francini-Pontier orchestra for RCA Victor.
