《岛上的人》是西班牙诗意写实主义电影的最后一部杰作，这个短暂的电影运动在西班牙只存在了几年的时间，从50年代中期开始到60年代初结束。随后就是CARLOS SAURA等一批青年导演领军的西班牙新浪潮电影的正式登场。5+ （如果按事实说，我觉得西班牙的诗意写实电影要比法国更为浪漫一点，法国人其实算比较实在的）
Before making his film debut with El Hombre de la Isla/That ...展开Man of the Isle (1959), Spanish director Vicente Escrivá spent much of the 1940s as head of Latin American programs at Radio Nacional; he also established himself as a writer of historical essays, the best known of which, "Jornadas de Miguel de Cervantes"/"Cervante's Journeys," earned him the National Literature Prize in 1947. Escrivá entered the film industry when he collaborated on the script for Sáenz de Heredia's La Mies es Mucha/That's a lot of Corn in 1948. In 1950, Escrivá co-founded Aspa Films with Rafael Gil. With Gil usually directing and Escrivá writing the scripts, the two created a series religious-themed films that were popular throughout Europe as well as Spain. Both Escrivá's debut and his sophomore effort, Dulcinea/Enchantment of Love (1962), received favorable critical reviews, but neither garnered much public interest, leading Escrivá to abandon his notions of making art films. Instead, he came to specialize in mainstream light fare; many of these films starred pop singer Raphael. Escrivá also made many sex comedies and later in his career turned to directing television series.
