  • Although it has much in common with adventure films, Luis Bunuel's "Death in the Garden" offers a subtle examination of some of his favorite themes: religion, betrayal and greed. Set in a South American country where mining is a major source of income, the drama examines what happens when the repressive government tries to revoke the claims staked by some poor prospectors. After the edict leads to a violent revolt, a diverse group, which includes a prostitute, miners, a priest, a trader and a deaf-mute girl, tries to escape through the jungle. As frequently happens in the Bunuelian world, the individuals break down under pressure in ways both selfish and noble.

  • Critic Reviews
    "...Full of marvelous, uniquely Buelian moments..."
    New York Times

    "Like many of Bunuel's Mexican films DEATH IN THE GARDEN works at once as a commercial genre picture and as a clandestine act of social subversion."
    New York Times
