Is life about to get better for poor Pepe and his family?
17 June 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The first film in this trilogy, "Nosotros Los Pobres", didn't excite me very much as it seemed overly melodramatic and even a bit syrupy. However, after seeing this second film I wonder if perhaps some of the reason I didn't like the original was because I was rather new to Mexican films and wasn't used to the excessive sentimentality. Regardless, some of the same things I didn't like in the first film were also in this second one---but I enjoyed it a bit more.

Once again Pedro Infante stars as Pepe el Toro--a poor but honest guy who's raising his dead sister's girl, Chachita. Since the last film, Pepe has married and has a young son and his wife is pregnant once again. Into their poor but happy lives comes Chachita's ne'er do well father--a rich but weak-willed man who abandoned Chachita's mother years ago. When Pepe meets him, he beats the snot out of the guy. However, this fateful meeting let the guy know that he has a daughter--and when his nasty mother finds out, she vows to take the child. It seems that grandma's go to answer to everything is 'I can have it because I am rich' and she plans to do ANYTHING to take Chachita away from Pepe.

Into this complicated family drama comes another plot from the first film. When Pepe was unjustly imprisoned, he fought a nasty jerk and left him blind in one eye. Now escaped from prison, he and his friends plan on revenge. This leads to a very exciting finale (the best part of the film actually) as well as tragedy.

Overall, this is a decent melodrama but could have been a bit better. Had a few of the supporting characters been more realistic and less over-the-top (such as the clumsy guy called 'Dumb' and the two crazy, dirty ladies) and there been less unnecessary singing (something you'll find in most of Infante's films), it would have been much better. Still, it is interesting and engaging.

By the way, if you do watch the film, be forewarned about the scene late in the film involving a streetcar and a man losing his legs. It's surprisingly vivid to say the least.
