| Enjoyable and fun retelling based on The TAMING OF THE SHREW with charming actors as Alberto Closas and Carmen Sevilla
This is a new rendition based on the classic play by William Shakespeare with a great Spanish cast as Camen Sevilla and Alberto Closas ; along with nice secondaries as Manolo Gomez Bur , Raymond Cordy , Luis Sanchez Polack , among others .The plot is wel known as the youngest daughter of a wealthy aristocrat is not allowed to marry until his eldest daughter , the extremely headstrong is bethrothed . This task seems to be impossible because of her shrewish demeanor . But with the sudden arrival of the lusty Alberto Closas things change , as he agrees to court her when is told of her wit and beauty .

It was all movement , arguments, action, energy , fast and fun.A good natured version of the play with luxurious sets , impressive production design , brilliant gowns and evocative scenarios. Thoroughly enjoyable , though follows partially the original play .Carmen Sevilla and Alberto Closas give likeable interpretations , both of them are full of life and energy .The acting , pursuits, swordplay , dancing , songs and delivery of the lines were so crisp. There are huge set pieces , elaborate props , adequate costumes and great production.

Big budget movie by the great producer Benito Perojo , being a Spanish French coproduction. Sensational setting by the prestigious Sigfrido Burmann . Luxury photography, being neccessary a perfect remastering beacause of the colors are washed out. Atmospheric musical score by Augusto Alguero including songs sung by Carmen Sevilla . Evocative and adequate cinematography by Antonio L Ballesterors. The motion picture was professional and lavishly directed by Antonio Roman . Antonio was a good craftsman who directed acceptableas Pacto de Silencio, Los ultimos de Filipinas, Fuenteovejuna, Escuadrilla, tiro por la espalda , El amor Brujo and a Western titled Ringo de Nebraska
