This movie is about how life used to be in Mexico. It is a love story between Pedro and Tita, and why they coudn’t get married because Tita’s mother wanted her oldest daughter to get married first, and have Tita to stay and take care of her.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what’s now showing
é brega. mas uma breguice sincera. true dramalhão mexicano, at its best. uma novela do sbt dos anos 90 toda grudada pra caber em 105 min. vale a pena pelo contexto, chega a ser hilário na mexicanice at some points
Apart from a crackerjack performance from the female lead, I wouldn't really recommend it to anyone. Like Amelie, a wildly successful foreign film that still couldn't match the dollars, it's an artifact of another era or film-making, where romance exists as a (very silly) end unto itself.
