This Julio Bracho comedy with Mapy Cortés is great!
Songs, choreography (by Anna Sokolow), cast, everything takes shape into a wonderful piece! This zarzuela, with music and lyrics from Vicente Lleó, written in 1910 and based in a french operetta Madame Putiphar, was first made famous in theaters in México by María Conesa (Gatita Blanca), and this could be the film version of it.
To make thing funnier, Mapy breaks ''the fourth wall'' to communicate directly with the audience, and invite them to sing along... and just like in a live presentation, Mapy says that she can not hear us, we are not singing loud enough, and ask us to sing louder... isn't clever?
There's another "Corte de Faraón", from 1985 with Ana Belén and Antonio Banderas that is not a remake. Very good too and based in the same zarzuela, but completely different.
