5 of 5 A comic drama (you figure) July 17, 2016
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Homestead, FL United States  
This film belongs to Luis Bunuel’s Mexican period  during the Golden age of the Mexican cinema. Nothing surrealist here.  Instead it’s a comic drama  with Fernando Soler, an excellent actor in the role of Don Quintin, a character always sour who continuously loses his temper and  disposes of two very funny henchmen.    The film technique’s very good and the musical score by Manuel Esperon is quite nice.   The only objection I have is that being adapted from the play by Carlos Arniches “Don Quintin el amargao”, the film should have kept the same title, since Don Quintin is the unquestionable main character.
