Scene from Los Olvidados - Luis Buñuel


Simón del desierto too

Dale Hazelton

The opening sequence is definitely "Simon of the Desert":

"An intriguing tale of spiritual quest and temptation. A 5th century ascetic
stands atop a pedestal in constant prayer. He takes only minimal sustenance
and rejects any attempts to distract him. The devil appears in several in-
carnations, always as a woman. The image of the devil as a beautiful, golden
haired, bearded woman carrying a lamb in her arms is unforgettable. Often
called "the greatest short film of all time", Bunuel's wit was never sharper
or more biting, his surrealist vision never clearer. Classic shock ending."
