Part of BAMcinématek series Buñuel
Directed by Luis Buñuel | 1955

With Ernesto Alonso, Miroslava, Rita Macedo

This perverse, horror-tinged comedy from the director’s Mexican period is a bizarro tale of music boxes, murder, and mannequins. Convinced from a young age that his music box has the power to kill, Archibaldo de la Cruz grows up to be a wannabe serial killer whose attempts at a sex murder are repeatedly thwarted by kismet. Buñuel layers on the Grand Guignol touches (including a memorably macabre incineration of a dummy) in one of his most purely enjoyable films.
