"Death in the Garden"
Directed by Luis Bunuel
Fleeing a repressive government, a group of misfits (a
miner, a prostitute, a priest and a deaf-mute girl) escape through the
Amazon jungle. As the journey becomes more arduous, the characters begin to
shed their petty differences and work toward a common good. The discovery of
a crashed airliner supplying food and money introduces a renewed
unpleasantness in the group. A thriller with a surrealist's touch. Featuring
Georges Marchal, Michel Piccoli and Simone Signoret. French with English
subtitles. 90 minutes.
