Luis Buñuel, Nazarin, 1958

Luis Buñuel: Aesthetics of the Irrational: Nazarin

18 Nov 2015

Father Nazarín, a non-denominational journeyman priest, wanders through the plagues, sins and poverty of the secular world, experiencing a number of episodes that echo incidents in the Gospels...until he learns the momentous lesson that he can receive charity as well as give it.

The director was 60-years-old when he made this film, but it has the vigour, boldness and freshness of a young man’s work. Whilst he remains true to his surrealist beginnings, the film he creates here is much more accessible than the earlier outrageous pieces that he made with Salvador Dalí, and has to be seen as one of his key works; it hasn’t been screened theatrically in Britain for a number of years.

Nazarin, dir. Luis Buñuel, Mexico 1958, 95 mins.
