Movie Info

In a seedy, plague-ridden corner of turn-of-the-century Mexico, a pious priest, Nazarín (Francisco Rabal), takes in mentally ill Beatriz (Marga López) and her prostitute sister, Andara (Rita Macedo). At odds with the other members of his clergy, he decides to go on a religious journey with the two women, but manages to accidentally alienate or ruin almost everyone he meets. As Nazarín attempts to bring goodwill and faith to a decaying society, he's met with scorn, suspicion and persecution.

    one of buñuel's greatest mexican films, or let's just say greatest films. far more compassion than i was expecting from the great cynic in a religious setting and a great performance by paco rabal. open to many interpretations

    Only Buñuel's boundless brilliance and cynicism could achieve this mischievous, thought-provoking drama. A sad testament of what happens inside nearly all religious groups, only very few practice what they preach.

    So, why are so few films that capture the nature of Jesus Christ accurately? Let's throw away the fact that the Hollywood stamp, false rumors and flat, hipocrytical and inaccurate characters are always present. Also, let's exclude the religious fanatics with a narrow-minded perspective. Buñuel always exalted religion and destroyed the Catholic Church as the monstrous, almost bourgeois human institution it always represented throughout the centuries. Nazarín is shown as a modernist Christ, and through the surreal and experimental, neorealist scope of Buñuel, this testament is innovation in avant-garde storytelling. It's a more conventional film by this giant auteur, but words won't suffice for describing the genius, accuracy and originality of divinity and faith seen through the eyes of a vulnerable man, featuring one of the most grandiose catharsis ever put to celluloid. 99/100
