Summary
  • "Bellamente restaurada por la Academia Mexicana de Artes y Ciencias Cinematográficas, este clásico cine negro mexicano, será un regalo para los estudiantes del gran auteur Luis Buñuel, quienes dirigieron y co-escribieron el guion con Luis Alcoriza. El Bruto es un trabajador de mataderos musculoso que depende más del músculo que del poder cerebral. Es contratado por un casero para intimidar a sus inquilinos no deseados para que se muden, pero termina seduciendo a la hija de uno de ellos, para molestar a la esposa del arrendador, con quien también está teniendo una aventura. Magníficamente fotografiado por Agustín Jiménez y lleno de giro de la trama, esto debe esta en cualquier lista corta de amantes del noir."
  • "Beautifully restored by The Mexican Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, this classic Mexican film noir will be a treat for students of the great auteur Luis Buñuel, who directed and co-wrote the script with Luis Alcoriza. The Brute is a brawny slaughterhouse worker who relies more on muscle than brain power. He's hired by a landlord to intimidate his unwanted tenants into moving, but ends up seducing the daughter of one of them, much to the annoyance of the landlord's wife, with whom he's also having an affair. Gorgeously photographed by Agustín Jiménez and full of post twists, this should be on any noir lover's short list." -- From insert
