A bitter father in a dramatic mexican comedy!!!
10 January 2019 | by elo-equipamentosSee all my reviews

I don't know if laugh or cry, starting as usually Bunuel always does, in a strong dramatic way, however the picture will slowly drifting to a easy comedy, a pair of funny characters a kind of bodyguard of the cabaret's boss called simply as Infierno who were intruduced in the plot in mexican style, the owner Don Quintín played by Fernando Soler becomes to a bitter and bad temper man when he dissolves a failed marriage even having a little daughter who he didn't believe being own blood, despite the story has a dramatic approach the duo comic guys Angelito & EL Jonrón are the true bright stars who stolen fully the movie, there are many gags and jokes becoming a pleasant picture, it doesn't seems to be a Bunuel's movie actually, but has their enchants for so pure feelings, the mexicans are great ever!!!
