an absolute masterpiece. pretty disturbing though. all the characters let you down again and again. and if otherwise that is surely not enough to get back to surface.

Distrubingly brilliant. Can sense Buñuel touches all over the movie.

Not the most depressing thing I've ever seen (that 'honor' would go to Lilya 4-ever or possibly Osama), but relentlessly grim, right to the end.

Truly awesome. My introduction to Buñuel. Will be watching more of his movies in the coming days.

The disclaimer (nothing being fictitious) and introduction (not an optimistic take - it's reality) makes it all the more important.

Those poor children. I wanted to hug each one of them no matter how "bad" they were. Poverty is hell. It makes people feel and do all kinds of things they would never think to do otherwise. The dream sequence in the movie was wonderfully unexpected. The photography, clean and crisp. Not as brutal as I expected but I did have to turn away during the animal beatings/killings.

Really crude, and yes a memory of city that was and not exist anymore. Don't miss the alternative end wich was made to please the audience but fortunately it wasn't selected.

A real story from "la calle", it happens everyday in underdevelop countries.. The movie from Buñuel that most makes logical sense.
