This Strange Passion

Luis Buñuel Mexico, 1953

Pedro Miguel's rating of the film Él

I fell in love since the very first frame. The church and the organ music, the shot with the women's feet, those close-ups of the beautiful Gloria. As time went by i was more and more in love with all of it. Certainly one of Buñuel's most obsessive and well achieved efforts, almost schizophrenic in some way.
