Listen to my song.
"Escucha mi cancion" aka "Listen to my song" aka " Ecoute Ma Chanson" was the movie which suddenly made Joselito Jimenez an international megastar.I have a warm spot in my heart for this one which I saw in a movie theater when I was a kid.

"Escucha mi cancion" has a much better screenplay than the previous efforts.Although the long flashback is badly introduced in the movie,children will hardly notice it and this film,like all the Joselito saga ,was aimed at a young audience.Religious fervor has almost disappeared (Only two sentences in the whole movie when Joselito/Cinderella is watching the stars and when his mother tells him that God will help them;that's all,no priest,no church,no prayers ,which is quite amazing,compared to the two "Ruisenor" ).

"Escucha mi cancion" was obviously made for an international audience;even the songs have a more easy-listening feel.They are less numerous than in the previous films,but they are more palatable for a non-Spanish audience.

Joselito plays an orphan a shrew treats badly.But he takes a job in a gypsies ' small circus as a singer of course .Thus he will be able to travel across Spain and to find his mother.The only thing he 's got from her is a medal.Television will be a great help in his search.

Like in "Saeta del Ruisenor" ,(the American millionaire) ,there's a good fairy here too:an aristocrat ,a marquis ! Do not forget your box of Kleenex for the last third.
