| Not a classic Buñuel Film ... but very good indeed
I saw this one last night, just knowing that is considered a minor work in Buñuel's career, and I have to disagree because being an old movie with a relative plane plot, it kept me really interested from beginning to end so I had to watch it completely, considering that I was really tired last night ...

The story about the town, the river, the traditions of the people who lived there, the constant fights between the Anguianos and the Menchacas, are quite thrilling and charming on a certain point of view If you're looking for strange situations, surprises, surrealism, plot twists, black humor (excepting the priest with the gun) and absurdity, you may be disappointed by this film I love Buñuel films, and I fully enjoyed this one
