The Rich Poor World of Ismael Rodriguez
5 October 2005 | by (Monterrey,Mexico) – See all my reviews

Since its beginning Nosotros Los Pobres(we, the poor),Ismael Rodriguez show us the originality of his propose, he introduce us every one of the characters while all of them sing as a operetta style a singular song, with this picturesque portray, the audience can forget for a moment the warning which Ismael Rodriguez presents as a prologue seconds ago, where he describe the poorness as the greatest of the heroism!!… Quickly we back to the reality of the "poor" world of Ismael Rodriguez ,dramatic situations(almost grotesques),follow it with touches of comedy, in this time he joined who will be the most representative couple of the Mexican films, Pedro Infante and Blanca Estela Pavon,in their second film as a couple (the first time was Cuando Lloran los Valientes,1945) they get together the most emotive scenes than any other Mexican couple, besides Ismael Rodriguez show us every typical character of our Mexican low class neighborhood, so we can see a couple of always drunk women(la Tostada y la Guayba),two load workers(Topillos y Planillas),the newspaper seller(el pinocho),the prostitute("la Que se levanta tarde"),the flirt girl shopkeeper, and others, all of them full of kind feelings and solidarity between them just for the simply fact to be poor.

Contrary about what some Rodriguez critics say about his filmography where according to them all the poor characters have to be kind and the rich ones have to be bad ,although in this movie the rich ones just have a brief appearance, (they had to wait until the second part of this story)the evil characters result to be as poor as the kind ones, and the extraordinary Miguel Inclan,the evilest one as the stepfather marihuana addicted. Pedro Infante Consecrate his Career with this Movie, and get his most famous song Amorcito Corazon composed by Pedro de Urdimalas who collaborated with Rodríguez in the dilogues of the film and played "Topillos" confirm his excellent popular sense already showed in others movies.

Without mention the intensity of Chachita,the effective performance of Carmen Montejo,the unforgiving Katy Jurado,etc.all of them essential to make perfect the Rich poor-World of Ismael Rodriguez.
