Jaime Chávarrri’s Las cosas del querer follows the trajectory of a song-and-dance duo and their piano player in the 1940s, with a look into their backstage lives and an evocation of the popular music of their times. As the group’s rise to fame and fortune parallels Franco’s consolidation of power in collusion with the Spanish aristocracy, their return to Madrid marks the most difficult moments of their careers. Lavishly produced and vibrantly entertaining as a musical, Las cosas del querer also addresses issues of fascism, feminism, and homophobia in postwar Spain.
