Beautiful bipoic of Mario Moreno's career and his still iconic enduring comedic personality, Cantinflas.
29 August 2014 | by oscaro573See all my reviews

Labeled as the "Charlie Chaplin of Mexico" and once called the greatest comedian alive by none other than the little tramp himself, Charlie Chaplin, Cantinflas was a improvisational comedic tour de force. If you consider yourself Mexican/Mexican American, or you simply wanna get to know the Mexican cinematic genius, Mario Moreno a.k.a.Cantinflas, (the unparalleled Shakespearean word playing tramp from Mexico) you are obligated to watch this film! I had my doubts about a Spanish actor being cast as one of our most iconic Mexican figures, but justice has been done to this endearing personality.The Performance and execution are spot on as Señor Mario Moreno. Well as the cliché goes,Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, pos "ahí esta el detalle!"
