  • Viridiana is a novice on the verge of taking her vows when she visits her uncle Don Jaime's farm. Still pining for his wife who died on their wedding night, Don Jaime is struck by Viridiana's resemblance to her. He drugs Viridiana and attempts to rape her. Later on Don Jaime confesses to her what he tried to do, but soon hangs himself, humiliated by his own atrocious behavior. Viridiana inherits his farm and in an act of charity, opens it up to a marauding troupe of beggars. To her dismay, they ruin the main house in a wild orgy culminating in a gross parody of the Last Supper. Upon its release in 1961, VIRIDIANA was condemned by the Church, banned in Spain, awarded the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival, and admired by film audiences the world over.

    "[A] typically classy, high-def digital Criterion Collection entry..."
