Full of offbeat images and symbolism, Buñuel mixes realism and surrealism in what is not only one of his most powerful films but also one of the greatest and most heart-wrenching films about poverty and childhood.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
Bunuel becomes a pioneer on the obscurities of youth counter culture through the eye of the urban and social standpoint.
This beautifully depicts the forgotten and yet so tiny world of teenage rebellion.
At LEAST as "surreal" as his work w/Dali or in France. Interesting: Bunuel here tosses his hopeless kid in a garbage heap. A few years earlier, Rossellini let his similarly desperate protagonist jump off a building. I'm not sure which was more painful.
