José Luis García Pérez,
Rodolfo (Trevino) is a young bachelor doctor who has a love affair with a younger music student, Ramon (Meza). When Rodolfo's mother begins to urge his son to get married, he quickly asks modern and open-mind Olga (Lupercio) to become his wife. Ramon is heart-broken, but Dona Herlinda (del Toro) has the final solution to make everybody happy: She asks Ramon to live with her, near by Rodolfo and Olga. Everybody together forever. Written by

Overlook the technical amateurism (sound especially) and some wooden acting. The storyline is original and well thought out. The enigmatic duplicity of Dona Herlinda is constant throughout the film, and a joy to watch. We're pretty sure we know that she knows what she's doing, but there's always a doubt in our mind. That doubt keeps us watching and waiting.
American gay guys of today, particularly younger guys, may find some scenes bizarre if not unbelievable. The dancing scenes at Lake Chalapa, for example. Trust me, it's the way things were. Having lived in Mexico some twenty years before this film was made, I can say with confidence that it depicts a slice of Mexican society in true-to-life fashion.
I enjoyed this movie quite a lot, and not just because the setting was somewhat nostalgic for me. I wasn't entirely sure where the movie was heading at any point, and to me, that's a sure mark of a good movie.
