Description: One of cinema's true innovators, Luis Buñuel takes a Spanish novel about a Don Quixote-like priest who is ridiculed for following the path of Christ, and brilliantly transposes it to turn-of-the-century Mexico. When he is defrocked for championing a prostitute and an outcast, Don Nazario takes to the road with the two women, living out his ideals until they are smashed by an uncaring world. "A masterpiece that reveals the human condition and shows us a way to surpass it. Buñuel's film unfolds under the double arch of beauty and rebellion.
