    The film introduced Cerda's focus on poverty and marginalization, which he continued in his later works. Due to the political content, he was unable to obtain state funding until the mid-1970s. The director said of the film: "I knew from the start that it was a good movie, but in Venezuela there are no schools, no tradition or film industry, which is why I believe we should start with movies aimed at the general public."

    Reception

    The movie helped launch the career of the singer Lila Morillo. Talking of this film and El rostro oculto (The Hidden Face) released soon after, a critic said "...these first two films reveal an interesting melange of styles and early technical ability, a search for language which came to an abrupt end in 1976 as the public demanded more and more 'delincuents'". Another commentator said the film was still weighed down with traditional banality, but introduced situations that the viewer could identify with and that might create social concern. By 2010, when the film was shown at the Festival del Cine Venezolano Mérida 2010 it was described a "A Venezuelan film classic".
