A Bunuel melodrama about a man conned into harassing tenants that his boss wants evicted. Other complications along the line are his seduction by the boss's mistress and his falling in love with a girl whose father he has accidentally murdered. ~ Tana Hobart, Rovi

Bunuel, for the first time in his life, was busy earning a decent living by turning out popular comedies and melodramas for Latin American audiences and, occasionally, making films of real distinction. El Bruto is not one of these.
a Frankenstein variant as the title character is physically as strong as the cattle he slaughters, yet the gentle soul remains vulnerable to the charms of women
Disturbing Bunuel film.
Sure, El Bruto is relatively apolitical but that's because Buñuel is drunk on animal magnetism.
