"Padre nuestro que estamos en tus terrenos..."
15 September 2003 | by (Los Angeles, USA) – See all my reviews

If you want to know and enjoy Cantinflas please avoid his movies made in color (including "80 days..). His best movies are the ones made in b/w ('40's and early 50's), and this is one of them. In the last scene with the great Angel Garaza he reinvented the prayer "Our Lord" and took many days to complete , because they couldn't stop laughing at each other, or so they say. The plot is based on a French play, and other versions were made in the 30's, but I can assure you that this one is by far the funniest.
