  • ramosbarajas's rating of the film Daughter of Deceit

    A melodrama-comedy that may seem to be very far from his more well-known works. The end and characterization of Soler's Quintin seem a little forced, but complies with the films of the era. However, overall, it might not be a major Buñuel, but it is very well made and extremely funny. The dialogue and performances are the stand outs, especially from the supporting cast of Aclemar, Soto and Contla. Recommended!!
