Sara Montiel sizzles
7 August 2010 | by jimakrosSee all my reviews

i just happened to see this movie on a Spanish TV station and i must say the picture was stunning.They have done a great restoration of this classic.

This movie is all about Sara Montiel,the story is pretty naive but no more than more modern rom-coms,it works well with the emotion Sara brings to her performances when Vallone,the man she loves but she feels has offended her is sitting in the audience. But the star is the thing here,she was gorgeous at the time and her voice in top form.I disagree with the other poster who says the music is dated,these are all classic songs.Classic songs don't date,they are just songs of another era.La violetera is dated?i don't think so. The funny thing is the beginning of the story is set in 1900,and she sings songs that were written decades later.Anyway.its a must to see the stunning Sara at the peak of her looks and vocal powers.
