Critic Reviews for Nazarin
It is so grim that it lacks even the energy to present itself dramatically.
It lacks his brilliant wit and seems much less adventurous than his 60s masterpieces.
Bunuel's surrealism is really a kind of mysticism in reverse, He has had to wrestle, not with the devil, but with the angel in him, and in Nazarin traces of the struggle are still apparent.
The film is beautiful, with all Builuel's peculiar sensuality in the face of things, which he can make, like faces, extraordinary and eloquent, ceaselessly expregsive and pregnant with this or that.
Audience Reviews for Nazarin
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
Dig up your hole Virgin Mary, Mother Teresa is waiting for you and her beloved prince-charming is standing aside!!!
Act 5 over, Scene 5 over, don't you worry Nazarin, your time hasn't come just yet...
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.
