Susana is a girl that is sent to work to a small coast village in the south of Spain. The women in the villages receive her with a cold shoulder. Susana finds out that they are resentful towards their husbands: before, they used to fish close to home and now they fish far away for months and months. Susana will give the women some lessons about living together, so the men would consider going back to old ways. This will make her fall in love again.
Mediocre comedy with the sympathetic Concha Velasco and regularly directed by the prolific Mariano Ozores
It deals with Susana, Concha Velasco, who is left on her wedding day, then her chief,
Tomas Blanco , assigns her to work on a small coast village and to carry out a peculiar job . There she meets the Mayor's wife , Florinda Chico, and the Town Hall secretary's spouse :Rafaela Aparicio and other angry women as Perla Cristal, Paloma Cela, Mary Francis, Mary Begoña . Susana finds out that the lonely women are resentful towards their hubbies. Later on, Susana gives some marriage lessons to the abandoned women .As husbands : Roberto Camardiel , Manuel Zarzo, Jose Sacristan .. use to fish far away for long time, around six months , nowadays , they go back but the fishermen find some unexpected surprises.
This is a silly and corny comedy with ridiculous situations, ordinary battle of the sexes and love stories . Stars Concha Velasco giving a likeable acting as the beautiful girl who delivers advices about living together to the villager women and she, finally , falls in love for a fisherman. She is well accompanied by a good support cast, such as Juanjo Menendez , Angel Aranda , Roberto Camardiel, Florinda Chico, Perla Cristal, Goyo Lebrero, Antonio Ozores , Erasmo Pascual , Jose Sacristan, Rogelio Madrid , Emilio Laguna , Mary Begoña, Mary Francis or Paca Gabaldon, Beni Deus, among others. And a cameo by weather TV presenter Mariano Medina.
It contains a glimmering and colorful cinematography by Vicente Minaya, shot in the South of Spain in Roquetas de Mar, Aguadulce, Almeria, Andalucia . Including an atmospheric musical score by Jose Torregrosa, adding some catching songs sung by Los Gemelos del Mar and by Concha Velasco herself . Being produced by Izaro Films, the motion picture was middlingly directed by Mariano Ozores.He is brother of Antonio Ozores and uncle of Adriana Ozores and Emma Ozores.
