  • Produced by Uninci Films 59. Premiered in Mexico May 8, 1962. There is an old Mexican saying: "After twenty-four hours, corpses and houseguests start to smell bad." Buuel had this to say about the film: "[It is] a metaphor, a deeply felt, disturbing reflection of the life of modern man, a witness to the fundamental preoccupations of our time. Its images, like the images in a dream, do not reflect reality, but themselves create it." The film is based on an unpublished play entitled "Los Nufragos" by Jos Bergamn. The original scenario was entitled "Los Nufragos de la calle de la Providencia." Additional cast: Luis Beristin (Christin); Antonio Bravo (Russell); Claudio Brook (Majordomo); Csar del Campo (The Colonel); Rosa Elena Durgel (Silvia); Lucy Gallardo (Luca, Nobile's Wife); Enrique Garca Alvarez (Seor Roc); Ofelia Guilmain (Juana Avila); Nadia Haro Olivia (Ana Maynar); Tito Junco (Ral); Xavier Loya (Francisco Avila); Xavier Mass (Eduardo); Angel Merino (Lucas, the Waiter); Ofelia Montesco (Beatriz, Eduardo's Fiance); Patricia Morn (Rita, Christin's Wife); Patricia de Morelos (Blanca); and Bertha Moss (Leonora).

  • Critic Reviews
    "...Surreal....THE EXTERMINATING ANGEL is fantasy filmmaking..."
    Los Angeles Times

    "...Luis Bunuel's THE EXTERMINATING ANGEL is a macabre comedy, a mordant view of human nature....He created a world so particular, it is impossible to watch any Bunuel film for very long without knowing who its director was..."
    Chicago Sun-Times

    "[THE EXTERMINATING ANGEL is] among the most free-spirited of Bunuel's films, fully recovering the nonnarrative liberty of his earliest work."
    New York Times
