| Not one of the best, but Tin Tan at least
From beginning to end, there's always a feeling that this motion picture is without a doubt 50 years old. Mainly because of it's candid plot -a man (Tin-Tán) that happens to arrive on an island ruled by women who is mistaken for a God by it's tribe and the chief of it, named Toronga (Marcelo)-, and for the way it goes developing the story. Tin-Tán falls in love with this one girl, try to create a rebellion by the oppressed men, and when the scam is unveiled (that he's not a deity), and after an auction where he is being sold to the bachelorettes, he convinces the women not to fight against the warriors from a rival island but to surrender the enemy with their charms. This leaves Tin-Tán with the woman he wants and also closes all in a happy ending that comes along full of choreographies and songs that now has become a trade mark on the comic-musical features of this kind of pictures made back then.

But nevermind the aesthetics and aged taste because the main role belongs to Tin-Tán, one of our greatest comic actor of all times; his sole presence in black & white movies make them worth watching, and even if this one may not be one of his best (on this category fall those made as a Pachuco and/or with Martínez Solares directing, and Tun-Tun, Rubinskis and Vitola as sidekicks), this Women's island is certainly a fun experience just because of him.
