Movie Reviews

A memorable melodrama
Alejandra Vernon | Long Beach, California | 04/30/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Writer/Director Ismael Rodriguez makes this dedication at the start of this 1948 classic film: "A todas estas gentes sencillas y buenas, cuyo unico pecado es el haber nacido pobres...va mi esfuerzo", and he gives us a story about people caught in the grip of poverty, when their luck goes from bad to worse.Beautifully photographed in sepia tones in what looks like a soundstage, it stars the wonderful Pedro Infante, and his exquisite interpretation of "Amorcito Corazon" is one of the film's highlights.
A face that will be familiar to U.S. audiences is a young and attractive Katy Jurado, in one of the supporting roles as "La que se levanta tarde".The plot consists of one calamity after another, but it has humor as well. The two tipsy women, La Tostada and La Guayaba, are hilarious, and it has many light moments and musical numbers.
Though the film might have weaknesses, it has charm and tenderness, and it makes a tremendous impact...it's not a film you're going to forget.
Its parting words, written on the back of a truck, are "se sufre...¡ pero se aprende !" ("one suffers, but one learns !"). The story is about suffering, but it's also about courage and love.Another Rodriguez/Infante film not to be missed is "Los Tres Garcias", which is a comic masterpiece, and one of my very favorite films."

A Latin Epic if there ever was one.
Richard De La Torre | Miami, FL United States | 03/06/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"While western cinema has been gifted with wonderfull epics such as "The Godfather" and recent epics such as the "Lord of the Rings", often foreign films, though usually just as wonderfull, seem to come in singles. It's very rare to find a trilogy of epic proportions outside of the United States, but if there was ever a series of movies by any Mexican directory that can most definately be classified as an Epic, it's the trilogy of "Pepe el Toro" (Pepe the Bull).Starring the late, great, Mexican actor/musician and songwriter, Pedro Infante, this trilogy tells the tale of a young Mexican boxer that went from rags to ritches and back to rags. This is not your typical cookie-cutter, rags to ritches and back story however, moreso, this is a sublime Shakesperean tragedy that reflects the apogee of Mexican cinema. "Nosotros los Pobres", "Ustedes los Ricos", and "Pepe el Toro", is one of the finest trilogy of movies ever filmed, and no one, who considers themself a movie buff, should miss it. In true epic fashion, this movie will send you on a rollercoaster of emotions. It will bring you to tears and fill you full of joy, and make you profoundly think about those things in life we take for granted. It has romance, comedy, action, and drama, plenty of gripping, heart pounding drama.Don't miss this gem."
Extraordinaria
Victor Sologaistoa | Paris, France, Ile de France France | 03/19/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Más allá del enorme talento de Pedro Infante como cantante, esta película --que al lado de "Ustedes los Ricos" y "Pepe el Toro" forma una extraordinaria trilogía de la pobreza y la nobleza-- es una muestra de su asombrosa calidad interpretativa en tanto actor. He visto al menos dos personas (que no entendían ni una palabra en Español), llorar como Magdalenas al ver a Pedro Infante sortear desgracia tras desgracia en las tres cintas; a mi me conmueven varias escenas a pesar de que las conozco de memoria. Quienes la han visto, las volverán a ver y no se aburrirán; las nuevas generaciones descubrirán a uno de los más grandes actores populares de México y, les aseguro, no se decepcionarán.
Definitivamente, hay que tenerlas: cinco estrellas, facil."
