The Paper Man

El hombre de papel

Regisserad av Ismael Rodríguez
Mexiko, 1963
Drama

Synopsis

Told with much humor and insight, the story dwells on the loneliness of a mute—a paper-picker who finds that he doesn’t need to buy his way out of a lonely world. In fact, a windfall of a 10,000 peso note only serves to disillusion him about the real value of money.

Vad säger folk?

  • Heikan's rating of the film The Paper Man

    Following the vein of Italian Neorealism, this film follows the story of a poor mute man whose only wish in life is to have a son. Needless to say but, when he finally has the means to raise a child, the whole world conspires against him. This is tragedy in it's purest form. An excellente, heart-warming film, with an impeccable performance by one of Mexico's greatest: Ignacio López Tarso (nevermind the soap operas)
