Raising Idol
15 November 2004 | by (Monterrey,Mexico) – See all my reviews

This Movie could be consider as the first great hit between Ismael Rodriguez and Pedro Infante ,they had worked together in two movies before as actor-director, and was the last ,before this(Cuando lloran los valientes,1945)in that we can see the magnitude of this duet.Los Tres Garcia, a classic of the Mexican cinematography, tells the story of the three Garcia cousins fighting for the love of their other Girl cousin(in second grade)the 'gringuita' Marga Lopez who came from the Unite States to visit the Garcias'town and her Grandmother(the authoritarian and extraordinary Sara Garcia) And get worst the already damage relationship between the three cousins, all this around of the war of two families the Lopez vs Garcias.

Tells in a very agile rhythm,Ismael Rodriguez gives to this Comedy the right interpret for every personage, and could be one of the better points, and project in every one of the Garcia's Cousins the characteristics of the Mexican society at the forties, in this way we can see the rich cousin(Victor Manuel Mendoza),who had academic education was pedantic and a loan shark, represented the Mexican bourgeois, the poor one(Abel Salazar)without other defense but his honor and proud, represented the working and oppressed class and the last one a lazy,reveler,unworried and ladies' man(Pedro Infante), represented the every day more increased middle class, and was this cousin who gets the real identification with the public, (maybe 'cause he represented that every Mexican men would want to be) besides Pedro Infante gives to this personage all his good-natured required in which any other actor could be pathetic, and was precisely this movie which accelerated his career as an actor and give him since that moment the adoration of the public that any other Mexican actor-actress has enjoyed until this moment, almost fifty years after his dead.

Nowadays Los Tres Garcias is one of the most repeated Infante's movie by the open TV, only surpassed for Nosotros los Pobres(another Rodriguez-Infante movie)and the new generations can enjoy it (I can prove it!) like our grandparents did, and specially our grandmothers.
