Carlos gives Carmen a ring, which she sells at her father's insistence. He follows her to her work as a dancer to collect the money, sees how she is treated, and promises her that she will never have to work again. He will work for the two of them.

Meanwhile, Carlos the optimist sends his friend León the pessimist to see Kamus, a drunkard and philosopher who possess a movie camera. Kamus had promised to Carlos in a note to reveal "the truth" to him. Kamus' many films include Carmen's discussion with her father in the dressing room.

Agreeable early Spanish film.
5 January 2011 | by MozjoukineSee all my reviews

Two young men have opposing points of view. The glum Ardavin sends his more life embracing associate Durán to see Prof. Baroja, whose use of the cinema is claimed as revealing life.

From the troubled career of Sobrevila, a contemporary of Buñuel who had a better sense of film form that his. A supposedly avant garde piece, this is actually closer to René Clair than Murnau, with appealing young players and a knock about comedy conclusion. It was suppressed (too modern?) at the time of it's production

The cast are skillful and the filming effective, even if the only Madrid exteriors are in the film within a film. How man Spanish silent films do we ever get to see?
