Uno y medio contra el mundo (English: "One and a Half Against the World") is a 1973 Mexican comedy drama film directed by José Estrada and starring Vicente Fernández, Ofelia Medina and Rocío Brambila.[1]

Plot

Lauro (Fernández) is a thief who, while escaping from one of his robberies, meets the boy Chava (Brambila), who is as much of a rogue as he is. Upon arriving in Mexico City they decide to work and live together. Eventually Lauro is apprehended for his crimes, and while visiting him in jail, Chava reveals that he is actually a girl. Years later, after Lauro leaves prison, he meets the already adult Chava (Medina), and they decide to steal as before, with her disguised as a male. They both fall in love and one day they kiss. However, a gang sees them, and due to Chava's disguise, confuses them for a homosexual couple, and they attack them violently, stabbing them both. The film ends with a mortally wounded Lauro carrying the already dead Chava in his arms.

Reception

In Cinema of Solitude: A Critical Study of Mexican Film, 1967–1983, Charles Ramírez Berg mentions the film together with El albañil (The Bricklayer, 1975) and El Coyote y la Bronca (Coyote and Bronca, 1980) as examples of films of Vicente Fernández in which "the Fernández character is helped by women, and he is able to accept it without feeling that he is losing his manhood," because "For him, women are mysterious but unthreatening, so he treats them as equals, not as serfs."[1] A review by Etcétera in 2019 considers the film Vicente Fernández's "only worthwhile" film, "perhaps together" with El albañil.[2]

Because of the film's ending, in which Ofelia Medina's character is stabbed for kissing Vicente Fernández's character while she is dressed as a man, the film received notoriety after a controversy in which Fernández claimed in 2019 that he refused to receive a liver transplant, after being diagnosed with cancer, in case the donor was homosexual.[3] Etcétera's review stated "46 years after that film, Vicente Fernández himself still does not understand."[2]
