Se rompe asi cualquier posibilidad de relation, pertenecen a dos grupos antagonicos. El cacique puede contratar a los comicos para la diversion propia y de sus vecinos, pero mas alla de este ambito cualquier otra El teatro en el cine espanol 37 relation es inviable. La reaction del padre cuando se entera de que su hija esta hablando con Carlitos lo explica con violencia y rotundidad. A nadie le extrana. Los miembros de la companfa apenas se lamentan porque han asumido su situation social y solo la ignorancia del joven Carlitos puede transgredir unos codigos tan viejos como vigentes en aquella Espana.

A cambio, todos le respetan y saben lo necesario que es para que la compania se abra paso. Son los pactos implicitos para la supervivencia. Los pactos propios de grupos marginales que jamas pueden protagonizar un enfrentamiento directo con el poder y deben saber convivir con el, saber sobrevivir. Por lo tanto, la marginacion de los comicos que se muestra en El viaje a ninguna parte es doble: por ser unos personajes humildes y por ser comicos. Es asimismo una marginacion que no permite una relation normalizada con otros grupos, fuerza a la endogamia como luego veremos, anula la mayoria de las posibilidades de un exito que sea algo mas que fugaz y alienta comportamientos propios de una supervivencia donde el ingenio, la El teatro en el cine espanol 41 picaresca y el cinismo son imprescindibles.

Rios Carratald La diferencia, como ya dijimos, es la argumentation. Aqui se trata de una postura sin razones, mas efectista que argumentada. Y, por supuesto, carente de una trascendencia que vaya mas alla del topico que nos muestra por enesima vez el diffcil camino hacia el triunfo de la artista, cuya espera en el caso de Sara Montiel mas que dramatica se intuye melodramatica.
