A piece of trash...
31 August 1999 | by dalton2See all my reviews

This is one of those films you should avoid:

First point. Massiel is an awful singer (for me and I guess that for many people like me).

Second point. The plot is almost inexistent, and the screenplay is ridiculous. There are dialogue lines where I started laughing. The reason is obvious. The director had eight songs sung by Massiel with their own lyrics, he had to adapt the screenplay to them to make sense... and the result is, I guess, a little senseless.

Third point. The background music has nothing to do with the movie. There are a couple of themes mixed here and there with no relation with the scenes.

Fourth point. The actors are awful.

This film had a good box-office when it was released. The only reason I can imagine for that is that Massiel appears with few clothes on. And, believe me, that was a powerful reason in Spain in 1968.

I'll give it 3 out of 10, and that's just because I know there must be even worst films which deserve lower ratings.
