Screening as part of our Luís Buñuel retrospective, Buñuel in Spain. Screening introduced by Jose Maria Prado, Director of the Filmoteca Española.
Back in his native Spain, Buñuel went to work in its fledgling film industry for Filmófono Studio, serving as producer on a number of films. Apparently, Buñuel also wrote (uncredited) the screenplay for this bizarre tale of a cuckolded businessman who abandons his family only to be reunited years later with the daughter on his deathbed. Full of shocking revelations and steamy passions, the film would be remade by Buñuel years later in Mexico as Daughter of Deceit.
