Mexico and is starred by one of the best Mexican actors (Joaquin
It's the story of an aristocrat family (the Veradadas) that run out of
money, and they have to ask loans to a Lebanese retailer (Jalil). His
son (Selim) suffers because he's in love with Marta (Veradada's
daughter) who despise him. One day they're invited to visit Don
Guillermo's property, where Jalil, her wife Suan and Selim, meet Don
Guillermo's relatives who start to scorn Jalil's family. Finally this
Lebanese family will defend from Don Gullermo's family.
This movie is one of the most remembered movies from Joaquin Pardave.
It will make you laugh and cry in a few moments and it's a must if you
like to see classic movies (even more if you like Mexican classic
movies). If you liked this movie, I recommend you also El casto Susano,
El marchante Neguib, El ropavejero, El gran Makakikus, Ahi esta el
detalle, among others.
