Spanish ¨Cult movie¨ dealing with two nice and amusing love stories stunningly directed by Manuel Summers
22 September 2016 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

An agreeable flick formed by 2 episodes about a 12-year-old boy called Guillermo (Pedro Diaz Del Corral) who falls in love with a 13-year-old girl named Margarita (Cristina Galbó) of his very same age but more mature , and goes on to yellow , the love between two elders , : 85-year-old Valentin (José Cerrudo) and Josefa (Lina Onesti) that live at an asylum run by stiff nuns and they are not allowed to see each other . Formed by two parts , the first one starred by kiddies is longest than the second performed by old people ; both of them are crammed with comedy , jokes and good feeling .

Dramedy with plenty of humor , romances , light drama , social habits and a lot of songs . As the title of the film indicates , this film starts with a pink story ¨Del Rosa¨ starred by kiddies and a yellow tale ¨Al Amarillo¨ performed by two elderly people who live at an old people's home . This is not the typical comedy by that time , here there is a brief social denounce about the repression and excessive religion during Franco dictatorship , particularly on the second episode . In the flick there is especially comedy , humor , satire and social customs . This one belongs a diptych : ¨Del Rosa Al Amarillo¨ (63) that was formed by two episodes about love stories between teenagers and elderly people and ¨La Niña De Luto¨ starred by Alfredo Landa and Maria José Alfonso (1964) . Following to Summers's first film was made a third episode dealt with a young romance , but it was adapted on another movie , ¨La Niña De Luto¨ or ¨The girl in mourning¨ that pays tribute to previous picture . In fact , the grandfathers roles are incarnated by the same actors who played in ¨Del Rosa Al Amarillo¨ , but while the grandfather Jose Cerrudo gives a brief acting , the grandmother Lina Onesti only appears on a photo . It belongs to a Spanish period called ¨New Spanish cinema¨ of the 60s directed by students of the ¨Official Academy of Cine¨ or Escuela Oficial De Cinematografia . These films contained good stories that were beset by difficulties with the censors caused by a relentless critical to Catholic religion , sour urban or rural conventionality and extreme religious practices . "From Pink to Yellow" has an interesting as well as fun script by the same Manuel Summers , based on his own childhood experiences , as there appears his Madrid house , school , streets , O.J.E. summer camps , personal games and Tebeos or comic books about ¨El Guerrero Del Antifaz¨ . This film packs an atmospheric and evocative cinematography by Francisco Fraile . And atmospheric musical score full of ordinary sounds of the sixties by Antonio Pérez Olea . Adding traditional music , popular songs and modern music . And , of course , the famous songs , and film leitmotif : ¨Toda Una Vida Estaria Contigo , Mimando Y Cuidando¨ , plus : ¨Mirando Al Mar¨, ¨Yo Soy Aquel Negrito De Africa Tropical¨, ¨Margarita Se Llama Mi Amor¨ .

The motion picture was well produced by C. B. Films , Juan Miguel Lamet and Francisco Lara and compellingly directed by Manuel Summers . As it was successfully premiered , ¨"From Pink to Yellow" got awesome critics and had big hit at the Spanish box office . It won several awards in San Sebastian Festival and Circle of cinematographic writers . Manuel was a comic books humorist who publicized in ¨Pueblo¨ diary and on magazines as ¨Hermano Lobo¨and ¨La Codorniz¨. He was a comedian actor and an acceptable filmmaker . He realized a lot of films including social critical which tended not to be very well received by the censor . His successful first film ¨Del Rosa Al Amarillo¨ was followed by personal works wasted by excessive jokes as ¨El Juego De La Oca¨(65) . His first films were well considered in the ¨New Spanish Cinema¨ of the sixties and Summers was deemed to be the great hope of the Spaniard cinematic ; however , being subsequently frustrated . Summers was really interested in juvenile love stories and extreme humor . In his early and best first films , Summers developed sour critics to selfish villagers and repressed characters , coerced by social conventionalism , gossip and hypocrisy . He had a big flop titled ¨Juguetes Rotos¨ (66) . Summers , then , made two typical Spanish comedies with Alfredo Landa : ¨No Somos De Piedra¨(67) and ¨Porque Te Engaña Tu Marido¨ (68) . He , subsequently , directed teenager films as ¨Adiós Ciqueña Adios¨ (71) , ¨El Niño Es Nuestro¨(73) that achieved big hit and some of them are censored as ¨Ya Soy Mujer¨(75) , ¨Mi Primer Pecado¨ and ¨Me Hace Falta Un Bigote¨ , also concerning about romances among boys during the post-war in Madrid . His last works are mediocre , making fake documentary , such as : ¨To er Mundo e Gueno ¨ , ¨To Er Mundo E Mejo¨ , ¨To Er Mundo E Demasiao¨ and ¨Biblia En Pasta¨ (85) . He finishes his career directing his son David Summers , a known singer leader of the band ¨Hombres G¨ in commercial titles as ¨Sufre Mamon¨(87) ,¨and ¨Sueltate El Pelo¨(88)
