After 25 years of exile, surrealist film-maker Luis Bunuel was allowed back to his native Spain to direct Viridiana- only to have the film denounced by the Vatican and suppressed by the Spanish government on grounds of blasphemy and obscenity.
Perhaps the crowning achievement of Bunuel's career, the film centres on an idealistic young nun named Viridiana (Silvia Pinal). Before she is allowed to take her final vows, the Mother Superior requests that she visit her uncle Don Jamie (Fernando Rey), who has "selflessly" provided for the girl over the years. Having always considered him an unspeakable beast, she is surprised when he graciously welcomes her into his home. Just as graciously, he sets about to corrupt Viridiana beyond redemption - all because the girl resembles the wife that died on their wedding day.
