Introducing the Spanish Shirley Temple.
2 June 2003 | by bijou-2See all my reviews

Marisol's first film reveals a talented and more beautiful variation on the spanish child star than audiences had seen before. This story about the estranged child of a widowed Spanish cabaret singer bonding with her bitter wealthy Italian grandfather is a classic of Spanish cinema and made Marisol a household name in the spanish speaking world. The songs, her blonde hair and blue eyes, and the sometimes contrived sentiments work beautifully every step of the way. A RAY OF LIGHT indeed.
