Cantinflas in his prime, Acapulco still pristine in 1958
11 March 2001 | by (San Francisco) – See all my reviews

I saw this excellent Cantinflas film on Mexican TV recently and within found his famed charm and warmth, albeit wrapped within a typically improbable plot. His rise in social status as well as his time as an elevator operator accounts for the title, "Sube y Baja" (Ups and Downs). The beautiful travelogue type colors and sights of Acapulco, where most of the film is set are worth the price of admission alone. Subtler, between the lines comments on Mexican social order and Cantinflas unique adaptations of Mexican vernacular Spanish gives the film an overall unity.
