That this Spanish movie depicts the lifestyles of male and female homosexuals is most unusual for the period in which it was made (1975, late in the Franco era). The story concerns the rehearsals for a music-hall show featuring male and female impressionists, transvestites and exhibitionists, and while its directly recorded sound is mostly in Spanish, some dialogue is in French. One character in particular appears again and again: an old thespian who cannot resist telling about his career in exhaustive, often amusing detail. The film also begins and ends with brief narrations by comedian Alfredo Amestoy.
