A brilliant adaptation of the best Spanish theater
1 December 1998 | by (Darmstad, Germany) – See all my reviews

This excellent movie shows the skills achieved by Pilar Miro as well as the outstanding improvement in the photography/cinematography in the Spanish cinema, as now it can even afford to be sensationalist. Very amusing and entertaining but very difficult to follow too, as it is based on a Lope de Vega play characterized by the most baroque and exquisite use of Spanish. The last part is not up to the rest of the movie, but this is just a direct consequence of the play it is based on and in general to the baroque comedy plays.
