Good movie about a traditional family.
20 August 2005 | by andrescardenasgSee all my reviews

Sure, Father knows best, but not in this case. This was a very traditional movie in its time(1949). The tradition was that the father was the patriarch of the family. In this particular movie the father was not necessarily a model role. He was more a ridiculous one. The story, for whatever its worth, tells us the story of a Father-Son relationship which turns to be a supposedly funny interchange of situations. I particularly did not like this movie, but it is supposed to be among the best 25 movies in Mexico's Cinematography. Whether you like it or not, it is up to you. I did not see anything in this picture to make it so highly regarded by the Mexican official sites.
