Very under rated movie.
I've seen this movie, and I can say, for the era when it was made, it is an excellent movie.
The story about a mute paper picker who lived in the city dumps, looking for companionship due to the death of his dog, who was the only true friend he had in the world. After this tragedy, he started seeking companionship with any woman, but because he was mute, he was affraid of rejection and his obvious poor appearance and lack of money.
However, he finds a $10,000 pesos money bill which gives him the confidence to pursue his happiness, but bumps into a lot of problems once the people around him find out about this money and want to take advantage of him.
I suggest you watch it. Very good movie for the era it was made in.
