Synopsis

Cuando los Hijos Se Van
The title of this sentimental Mexican comedy-drama translates as When Children Leave Home. The story revolves around the trials and tribulations of family patriarch Fernando Soler and his loyal wife Sara Garcia. Central to the drama is "black sheep" son Emilio Tuero, who can't seem to stay out of trouble -- not that he tries too hard. While the story has its tragic elements, comedy relief is provided by family friend Joaquin Pardove. Primitive by Hollywood standards, Cuando los Hijos se Van nonetheless pleased its target audience. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Ahí está el detalle
In this Spanish-language comedy with echoes of a subplot in Chaplin's City Lights, the Mexican comedian Cantinflas stars as a down-and-outer who feigns an identity as the brother of a rich woman. Over time, he takes advantage of the assumed persona to elevate himself first to the maid's beau, then to 'master of the house' status, but the ruse becomes increasingly difficult to sustain over time, resulting in some fairly outrageous complications. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
