Hello, this is Spain calling... and making crime films. So don't expect a revolutionary plot: this movie narrates the investigation of a crime which has been charged to an innocent guy. Casualties of life, his father is a policeman, who will discover the activities of some young people (drugs, poker, girls abuse). The idea is clear: youth has lost its moral, and only the older generation (who fought for their country and built those kids) can make it work again.
Besides this simple exercise on repressive ideology we can read the name of Ignacio Ferrés Iquino, one of the most underrated Spanish filmmakers (he successfully directed all kind of genres, from comedy to western, from sci-fi to sex movies) but an effective constructor of realistic environments and dramatic situations. Not a movie for film history, but a good example of general Francisco Franco's favorite kind of cinema. If we forget its morality, we can find a nice film behind. Rating: 6 out of 10.
