Pepe El Toro not just fight against suffering
27 April 2008 | by (Monterrey,Mexico) – See all my reviews

The third sequel of Nosotros los Pobres, Ismael Rodriguez show us Pedro Infante as a boxer, a role requested by him ,according with a Rodriguez interview, maybe taking advanced of his good body shape, this time Rodriguez doesn't put Infante in a exaggerated suffering way, contrary he became in a success boxer who began his carer in his thirties, something that seems to be impossible, but not for Pepe el Toro who in this film is shown as a widower between two women(Irma Dorantes and Amanda del Llano) for decide to give his love,Drantes as his young neighbour and Del Llano as the wife of his best friend, (the always cool and nice Joaquin Cordero) who was killed by him in a box fight, the only tragedy in the movie, and at the end nobody knows what was his decision and it seems like an intentional plan of Ismael Rodriguez preparing a four sequel which never comes ,and maybe it was the best, Infante this time looks sadly alone without most of his funny dealers and specially without his "chorreada ",the adorable Blanca Estela Pavon who had died three years before this film in a plane crash just the chubby and now young chachita, his funny boyfriend ,el Pichi,and "Mantequilla" keep company to Infante in his elevate in a Champion boxer in a memorable and bloody fight versus Rubinky.

Ismael Rodriguez, may be didn't get with this film a success comparable with Nosotros los Pobres or Ustedes los Ricos but give us the opportunity to see Pepe el Toro in a different way far from great suffering without reduce the magnitude of Infante as a great actor.
