Part of BAMcinématek series Buñuel
Directed by Luis Buñuel | 1951

With Rosita Quintana, Fernando Soler, Víctor Manuel Mendoza

As a rainstorm howls outside, a sultry young woman (Quintana) utters a prayer to God to free her from the bat-infested reformatory that is her prison. And then, a miracle: the cell bars part. Finding refuge with a wealthy family, our amorous anti-heroine proceeds to systemically dismantle their household with her unchecked sexual deviancy. A raging, fever-pitch melodrama of erotic desire, Susana is a consistently subversive precursor to Buñuel’s later investigations of female sexuality, Belle de Jour and Tristana.
