Un pecado por mes1949

  • 3.8
Paloma, a lovely young college student and secretary for Belisario Quintana's auction house met Marcelo, a handsome college student of hard working but poor parents who have been helping him finance his tuition. Marcelo shares a room with his best friend Jorge and they are always on the brink of being evicted due to lack of money. Paloma lives at home with her parents. They both fell in love straight off. Marcelo, trying to impress the stunning lady, lied and told her that his parents were rich ranchers. Embarrassed by her meager living, she too lied and told Marcelo that she was the daughter of Belisario Quintana who was not only her boss but her family's landlord too. She only got paid once a month so she could only meet with Marcelo once a month. Each time she went to pay the rent Sylvia, Belisario Quintana's daughter of the same age gave her one of her old dresses as a gift. So each time Marcelo saw Paloma she was always dressed beautifully.

A quintessential adorable romantic comedy from the 1940s. It was interesting to hear the Argentine version of Spanish with the accent and occasional French flair thrown in. I was interested to see what Latin America was like during this time since American films were so enfatuated with South America in the 30s/40s. I especially loved when Marcelo said "a trick that can only be played in a movie." I would love to see more from this country/time!
