Example text

Pedro is, of course, the litmus test. His first step along the ‘path to hell’ is the point at which he accepts part of the money Jaibo has stolen from Julián’s wallet as he lies dead on the floor; he is in effect a partner in crime. This despite the fact that he attempted to stop Jaibo from beating Julián with a stick when he lay helpless on the ground. His second ‘flaw’ occurs when he allows Jaibo into the Knife Sharpener’s Shop where he has recently been taken on as an apprentice. Jaibo steals the knife and is quite happy to allow Pedro to take the blame for his actions.

Once more the camera focuses on Jaibo as he beats Pedro to death; now the same words are used but the object has changed: ‘no me pegues, no me pegues’ (don’t hit me, don’t hit me). In all four cases Buñuel is careful to combine a similar mise-en-scène with a similar script in order to underline the overwhelmingly repetitive nature of the primal aggression being enacted on screen. Investing the film with an internal dramatic coherence, the re-enactment of a violent act in four crucial scenes serves to indicate how Pedro has changed from unwilling observer to helpless witness, and then from perpetrator to victim.

Esperón and P. Urdimalas M. Esperón and F. Bermejo Salvador Flores R. Manuel M. Ponce J. Elizondo Méndez Velázquez José Antonio Méndez Plot The film opens with a ‘Prólogo’, which offers a preview in miniature of the film which is to follow. The two main men – Pedro and Jorge – discuss their strategies of seduction; while Jorge favours asking the woman for a Platonic relationship and thereby forcing the woman to play her hand, Pedro favours a more direct, flirtatious approach. We see both men wandering into the countryside with their girlfriends, singing popular Mexican songs as they go.
