The little village of Villar del Río is awaiting the song performance of Carmen Vargas, ‘The Great Andalusian Star’. The quiet village is governed by a deaf, naughty and good-natured Mayor, who’s only seeking the way to give life to the place.

1953 | Speciale Vermelding


What the film lampoons most spectacularly and thoroughly is Franco’s attempt to promote Spain in a single image: an Andalusian Spain that was all flamenco and bullfights… As in Placido, Berlanga uses thumbnail caricatures to populate his village, hilarious creations like the half-deaf mayor, a broke colonialist aristocrat and a rotund hustler/producer who turns their town into a Walt Disney-fied version of Spanishness.
