| Possibly, the best Spanish film of the 50's
Spain, about 1950, the radio is the main way of communication in most all the homes of Spain. Regarding this, the film tells us five stories that have, as a main point, the radio. Two men that follow the early morning Gym program; two Spanihs Edisons that need money for a patent, and take part in a show that will prize the first that arrives to the Radio dressed as a Eskimo; a thief that answers the phone when he is robbing in a house and wins a prize; a little town's teacher that has to take part in a quiz show to win the money needed to pay the travel to Sweden of an ill boy of the town; and the one that mixes everything: the relation between two of the radio speakers. The movie shows perfectly how was the radio vital for most of the people at that time, and how could their lives change only for being "on the air". With a very good acting and a surprisingly fresh script, the film is able the give you a pleasant half and hour of good cinema. It is the prove that it is not necessary to see modern films to enjoy a movie. Probably, one of the best Spanish films of all times, and of course, the best of the 50's.
