The sunny Spanish Costa del Sol and luminous Ornella Muti
In a nutshell if you like the early starring roles of Ornella Muti you will not be disappointed by this film. And also, this movie is a bittersweet love story, a simple melodrama, well crafted, without low punches and a couple of catchy pop songs that lends to the film a touch of musical movie. Ornella Muti (18 years old at that time) is a girl, precociously independent, with an incipient career as pop singer. Her singing is dubbed by the Spanish singer Sharine who lends her voice to Ornella in principally three songs: "Pequeña Bibi", "Lo que yo quiero" y "Sonríe, sonríe", this last piece is used like an adequate instrumental background music that underlies lot of scenes. The participation of Sharine is duly acknowledged in the titles sequence. El Señor (The man) is the versatile Italian actor Sergio Fantoni whom you can see acting as one of the quarrelsome brothers, sons of Edipus, king of Thebas, disputing the throne in a singular combat at the front gates of the city in the epic Hercules Unchained (1959) and in the role of a Nazi officer that ends up clashing with the SS in the film "Hornet's Nest" (1970). The writer and director of this picture is Pedro Masó who also wrote and directed "Experiencia Prematrimonial" the previous year starring Ornella Muti and Alessio Orano. "Una chica y un señor" is a film strictly popular looking to entertain an ample audience. In that respect excels because it is a very well narrated story, tender and poignant.
