Charming, touching and funny
25 April 2019 | by zutterjp48See all my reviews

"El Padrecito" is maybe one of the best films of Cantinflas !! When you live in U.S.A. , Mexico or Central America you can see this film at least every month on the local TV channels !! And the people enjoy it very.Now some words about the story: Padre Sebastian is sent to a small town and then all the people are quite surprised by his way to practice his mission !! It's a real storm in small town and some people don't agree with his behavior and his social message !! This film is really great for the performance of Cantinflas (Padre Sebastian), but also the performances of great Mexican actors and actresses such as Angelines Fernandez (Sara,the sister of Damian), Angel Garasa (Padre Damian) and Jose Elias Moreno (Don Silvestre Manzano) !!
