Part of BAMcinématek 2014 series Buñuel
Directed by Luis Buñuel | 1952

With Pedro Armendáriz, Katy Jurado, Andrés Soler

A conniving slumlord (Soler) hires El Bruto (Armendáriz), a simple-minded strongman with an explosive temper, to forcibly evict his rabble-rousing tenants. But a growing awareness of the class inequality he is helping to perpetuate leads the surprisingly sensitive Bruto to gradually turn against his boss, whose kinky wife (Jurado) meanwhile lusts after the macho man’s carnal animal magnetism. Charged with a palpable erotic energy, El Bruto is at once a sultry sadomasochistic melodrama and a scorching, eat-the-rich allegory.

In Spanish with English subtitles
