¡Viva México!
17 May 2005 | by See all my reviews

When watching Los tres huastecos I'm happy to say that its magic has endured since 1948.

Directed by Ismael Rodríguez and starring Pedro Infate (three times I might add) it was bound to call attention from the start.

Nonetheless, it has been throughout more than 50 years a great example of good cinema (Mexican or not): filled with songs, laughter, a good villain, witty dialog and main actors exhuding charisma (Pedro Infante, once again, multiplied by three, Blanca Estela Pavón, and Mantequilla -Cuco-, not forgetting the unforgettable first appearance by María Eugenia Llamas, a.k.a. La Tusita).

The nostalgia of a Mexico that probably is no more is thrown into oblivion once the plot starts. The whole story evokes a simpler, warmer México. It's important to note that this is one of many, many movies that were done back in the Golden Years of Mexican cinema, that shared this kind of quality and vibrancy.

Long gone are the days when Pedro made a movie and it was worth seeing, when watching a Mexican movie would put a smile on your face, or draw a tear from your eye.

Nowadays few -and I mean quite a FEW... near to NONE- Mexican productions rival this kind of storytelling, regardless the genre, plot, size or people involved.
