Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Los Chicos Crecen (The Kids Grow Up) is all about a lawyer who neglects to tell his new wife about his previous marriage and his three kids. So as not to spring any surprises on his spouse, the lawyer deposits the children with a family friend, who raises them as his own. Years pass: Widowed once more, the lawyer hopes for a reunion with his grown children-who by this point are completely unaware that he is their father. Arturo Garcia Buhr handles the difficult role of the vacillating lawyer with dignity and taste, creating instant audience empathy for a not terribly admirable character. Director Carlos Hugo Christiansen may have been young in years and movie experience, but he handles Los Chicos Crecen with the assurance of a seasoned veteran.
