McOpinionated's rating of the film Viridiana

I enjoyed it all. I saw it decades ago and only remember the milking and the last supper. The then-censors preferred the "shuffle the deck" ending?! The target is broad, the worst of human nature shown dispassionately. Multifaceted characters. Masochism, pride, misogyny, violence (rape with hinted paedophilia), piety, sloth, bullying etc. Charitableness, ambition, cameraderie, love, hope, work etc.
