Viruta and Capulina's final film is poignant but still good!
Dos pintores pintorescos (Two Painterly Painters) is Viruta and Capulina's final film. According to the press of the time, the comedy duo had already separated and only agreed to do the film in order to fulfill a previously signed contract. Affected by the duo's declining popularity, Gaspar Henaine wanted to embark on a career of his own; Viruta had no other choice but to do the same. This is an interesting Viruta and Capulina film because it is one of their few Eastmancolor productions; most of their vehicles were black-and-white movies. Ariel Award-winning cinematographer Rosalío Solano provides great camera work, and Roberto Gómez Bolaños' script is excellent. Marco Antonio Campos and Gaspar Henaine are funny as always, but one can sense that by this time they really weren't getting along anymore. Regina Torné and Gilda Mirós, have the distinction of being Viruta and Capulina's final leading ladies. Miguel Córcega is convincingly villainous. Eduardo Alcaraz, as the art teacher, is hilarious. I noticed that the film (both story and script) tends to favor Gaspar Henaine almost to the point that this can be considered one of Capulina's standalone films. That's the reason why I find this a bittersweet end to one of show business' greatest comedy duos. It's definitely worth watching and I like to watch it constantly because it's fun and literally colorful!
