Audience Member F 8.1 [Luis Buñuel] Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member L'histoire est tres convenue, mais pas d'ennui devant le film grace a la realisation impeccable et tres fluide de Bunuel. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member Only a few Bunuels left that I hadn't seen. It's hard for me to say I've seen this one, though... the subtitles were really rough and very much out of sync. Still, I managed to get the gist of it. Nice guy doctor, boring wife, intriguing mistress, asshole factory owner, exploited worker. Kind of a ho-hum melodrama but the camerawork was nice and the performances seemed pretty good. One of his least "Bunuel" movies, but you see parts of him shining through. Not one of his best, but he definitely did worse. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Made in the Italian neorealism style, the movie is based on the absurd of human fate. Is a new Bunuel, very different from what he made until 1956. The character is similar with Nazarin, above the human prejudice, follow his main purpose: helping the humans, without criticize them. The story must be followed also from it symbols. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/15/23 Full Review Read all reviews
