One of Tin Tán's most famous comedies
25 October 2010 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

Like other Mexican masters of humor (for example, Cantinflas), Germán Valdés created Tin Tán with a strong feeling of a unique personality and original language. He came from a family of comedians very famous in movies and TV (he is brother of Ramón Valdés and Manuel "Loco" Valdés). Tin Tán incarnated the figure of 1940s' pachuco, young Mexican American guys, with strong feelings for his roots (music, dancing) that returned to Mexico and find a country distant to them in customs and rhythm of life. "Calabacitas tiernas" was one of the first works in the vertiginous career of Valdés, so it is one of the most representative examples of what we will find in his later works: co-working with his brothers, beautiful women, a story around the show business, problems with the police, characteristic music and dancing, references to cinema, mentions of Mexican culture topics and identity confusions.
