Movie Info

Luis Buñuel thought he was destined for stardom of surrealism, but is left with nothing. He is offered a documentary on one of the poorest areas in Spain, Las Hurdes, but he has no money. His friend, the sculptor Ramón Acín, buys a lottery ticket with the promise that he will pay for the film, he wins and keeps his promise. Reality, memories of his childhood, Salvador Dalí and dreams are mixed in his mind, endangering the film and his friendship with Ramón. From there will arise the Buñuel of the future. But what is left on the way? How much will that step cost?

  • The 2D animated rendering of the master filmmaker is more graphic interpretation than faithful portrait, perfect to cruise between reality and the anxiety-fueled nightmares that besiege his sleep.

  • At its best, Buñuel and the Labyrinth of the Turtles is as caught between dream and reality as the film that Buñuel made in the mountains of Spain.

  • At its most absorbing, "Buñuel in the Labyrinth of the Turtles" makes it clear there are no easy answers, perhaps especially when the art itself isn't easy.

  • The animation is handsome, the graphic settings understated but intelligently detailed.

  • A fun, clever, and wholly unexpected animated movie about the making of Luis Buñuel's "Land Without Bread."

    Aug 13, 2019 | Rating: B | Full Review…
  • Bunuel is above all a good story elegantly told, transcending its obviously niche appeal and showing that Spanish animation, following last year's multiple award-winning Another Day of Life, is looking healthy.
