Description
 
A Woman Without Love (Cuando los Hijos nos Juzgan)
directed by Luis Buñuel

A marker of his “Mexican years,” Luis Buñuel’s adaptation of Guy de Maupassant’s “Pierre et Jean” skewers bourgeois values with brilliant satire.

An unhappily married woman indulges in a brief, torrid affair with an engineer, but then refuses to leave her elderly husband. Twenty five years later, the former lover leaves a fortune to her son, causing uproar.

Buñuel skillfully undermines the soap opera plot by stripping the characters of any vestige of nobility, cruelly exposing their selfishness and bourgeois hypocrisy.

Starring: Rosario Granados, Tito Junco, Julio Villareal, Joaquin Cordero. Director: Luis Buñuel. Writer: Jaime Salvador, from the story “Pierre et Jean” by Guy de Maupassant. Cinematographer: Raul Martinez Solares. Score: Raul Lavista. Producers: Sergio Kogan & Oscar Dancigers.
