My Parents Are Divorcing

Mis padres se divorcian (1959) isn't that outstanding, but it does feature Libertad Lamarque (Argentine singer and actress) singing five songs, a few of which were written by the great Agustín Lara (Mexican composer). He's even in the film playing the piano while Libertad Lamarque sings. If you ever are in Madrid Spain, be sure to visit the statue of Agustín Lara, it's in the Lavapies neighborhood. The statue was made by the Mexican sculptor Humberto Peraza (he did a lot of bullfighting themes in his statues). It's in Lavapies, a neighborhood that's supposed to be "rough", but it wasn't that bad. Just go in the daytime or with a few friends.

One song that is quite beautiful in the film is,

"Amor, amor, amor, nació de ti..."

The film is a mixture of comedy, melodrama and songs. It doesn't really excel in any of them and the constant bickering between Diana Valdes (Libertad Lamarque) and Fernando Guerrero (Arturo de Cordova) gets tiring really quick. They even add a daughter, Alicia Guerrero (Martha Mijares) to add tension. All she does is whine about how nobody loves her. There's a 50's rock and roll scene that was annoying. The ending was highly theatrical as well, since the director added an earthquake that kills the servant, Tomasa, and the family all profess their love for each other.

It's pretty much average stuff and the sound is difficult to hear.

In Spanish with no subtitles.
