Not the Best Cantinflas,but the "good" one
1 February 2009 | by (Monterrey,Mexico) – See all my reviews

Once again Cantinflas explore a new Profession, this time so out of the common one, as a Priest as almost anybody could imagine him in the beginning of his career,Miguel M.Delgado his usual director put him in a rural environment with all the necessary ingredients for a familiar and nice comedy ,however its conventionalism, the mean tyrant(Jose Elias Moreno) who opposite to any progress of the town and obviously Cantinflas as the new priest confront him with everything against him inclusive the people who see him as an usurper of the place of the old priest place(Angel Garasa) in times which this profession was more respectable Cantinflas became the conscious of the town however his renovate ideas which Angelines Fernandez supposes (not without some reason) as socialism after listen him give a speech. Cantinflas refuse to baptize a baby just because he does not like his future name(Nepomuceno) and denied the banns to a couple because the guy look like lazy(according to him) and the lady does not know cook, no matter of these ,catholic church saw with good eyes and enthusiasm this movie in its time.
