A little old fashioned and syrupy but still a very sweet and enjoyable film.
12 April 2015 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

"The Right to Be Born" is a lovely old Mexican film. However, I am sure it's not for everyone because the film is extremely sentimental and contrived. Now I didn't mind this at all...but it is an old fashioned melodrama.

When the film begins, a lady comes to her doctor and tells her she wants an illegal abortion*. He is incensed and yells at her--then tells her the strange story about his life...a life that never would have taken place had his nasty grandfather had his way. I'd say more but don't want to ruin the film.

The story has lots of coincidences and is tough to believe if you are the sort who has difficulty with accepting these coincidences. I enjoyed it and the story is very compelling-- and there are some lovely performances and the story quite engaging.

By the way, one person who reviewed this says it's long like "Gone With the Wind". Well, although the plot is complicated and it takes place over a long period, the film is less than two hours long and seemed NOTHING like this Hollywood film.
