Critics reviews

Buñuel brings a studied classicism to this mystery-cum-romance set in the country’s oil fields. The great Jorge Negrete is one of three men who are entangled in a murder involving the owner of an independent oil field. Watch how music is often used to mask nefarious goings-on — a typically perverse, Buñuelian mixture of the grim and the frivolous.
