Storyline

Miss Flora Sandoval, in Madrid in 1895, takes a heroic resolution: instead of looking for a boyfriend to maintain her, as advised her own family, decides to be official of the Ministry of Public Works. The scandal is so great in a deeply patriarchal society, that even the Government is forced to intervene, having it no choice but to accept the claim of Florita, if only by way of experiment.

This film narrates the adventures and misfortunes of a beautiful lady that challenges the nineteen Spanish society trying to live by herself.
17 January 2006 | by korkoySee all my reviews

This is one of Spanish films that more absolutely surprised me, and it's maybe my favourite. Almost unknown, that's a masterpiece of genius of humour Miguel Mihura, adapted in this case for the screenplay by another great Spanish humourist, Fernando Fernán Gómez.

Burlesque and feminist satire, maybe first work of the genre in our cinema, this film narrates the adventures and misfortunes of a beautiful lady that want to gain money by herself for win a quasi-utopian independence in the too sexist society of late nineteen century. The first half-hour is marvelous, extraordinary, the laughs are guaranteed; a "molto vivace" rhythm patterns a succession of surrealistic gags pleasantly against stupidity and old morality in the Spain of 'fin de siècle'. Only at the last moments of the film the action decline a bit toward a too common finale, but that's a trifle, at least.

If you want to know a few better the culture and idiosyncrasy of our little country, maybe this is your chance.
