Product Notes

Luis Buquel's biting jab at the futility of asceticism and repentance is a surreal fable in his inimitable style. Simon, a 5th-century ascetic, stands on a pillar in the middle of the desert for three decades in a worthless quest to achieve enlightenment. Satan, in a variety of disguises, futilely tries to tempt him to descend from his post. And finally one of these embodiments - an alluring blonde - gets so disgusted and bored with his endless babbling that she forcibly and irreverently dumps him into a Manhattan discotheque. Starring Claudio Brook, Silvia Pinal, Hortensia Santovena Director Luis Bunuel Special Features: Full Frame - 1.33 Audio: Dolby Digital 1.0 - Spanish Subtitles - English - Optional Additional Release Material: Documentary: A MEXICAN BUNUEL Emilio Maille, Director - 1995 Interviews: Silvia Pinal, Actor.
