padre nazario, per seguire un cristianesimo ispirato totalmente ai vangeli, ha lasciato tutto e vive in poverta' per fare del bene agli altri. convocato da un alto prelato che gli rimprovera di avere dato ospitalita' a una ricercata e di avere una relazione con lei, nazarn sceglie di lasciare la citta' e di andare peregrinando nel messico infiammato dalle rivoluzioni di inizio secolo. in compagnia di una donna abbandonata dal suo amante e della prostituta all'origine dei suoi guai, nazarn termina la sua parabola su domande inquietanti: e' possibile seguire la via di cristo oggi? la chiesa e' in grado di assicurare una vera fede o non e' piuttosto una istituzione collusa col potere e che con la verita' non ha piu' niente a che fare?

Format: DVD
This 1958 film from legendary director Luis Bunuel is not one of his most well-know, but having just seen it I can say it's certainly one ofhis best.

It's also his most atypical film. For a film-maker renowned for his athiest and anti-clerical views NAZARIN is a surprisingly ambiguous tale.

A devout Catholic priest working in poverty-stricken areas of Mexico is determined to live and devote his life to Christ. His attempts to live a pureley Christian life meet with obstacles and hostility at every turn.

Depending on your own religious world view the film is either an affirmation of the power of faith or a total negation of it. Either way it's an incredibly powerful and moving experience. It's part of Bunuel's genius here that he does not force his hand and lets the individual decide.

Performances are stunning - particularly from Francisco Rabal, dogged and

consumed with passion.

By turns harrowing, riotously funny and unbearably moving NAZARIN is an amazing film that deserves it's place with Bunuel's finest work and certainly ranks alongside Pasolini's GOSPEL ACCORDING TO MATTHEW as one of the greatest of all religious films.

Luis Buñuel’s 1959 Mexican film, Nazarín is one of three Benito Pérez Galdós adaptations made with screenwriter Julio Alejandro. Together with Viridiana and Tristana the collaboration marks probably the highest peak in the Buñuel canon. This is a bold statement to make, but Galdós and Buñuel/Alejandro make for a perfect combination in their position on religion and the meaning it has (or doesn’t have) for Man. There is an eloquent yet deeply complex intellectual rigor to these films which is hugely impressive. Nazarín is usually approached as a typical Buñuel scathing dissection of the hypocrisy of organized religion and the way people practice their faith. After all, a healthy anti-religion aesthetic had been in his films from his surrealist beginnings onwards. From the priests and the tablets containing the Ten Commandments being towed across a room in Un Chien Andalou through to the boozy poker-playing priests of The Phantom of the Liberty religion (especially Catholicism) is attacked mercilessly. However, it’s important to see how important Galdós was in shaping Buñuel’s world view. His novels and plays pre-figured Buñuel taking almost an identical position of protest against the way Catholicism in Spain had resulted in a centuries-long history of heresy which had stultified the country in an ingrained culture of dogmatic repression. It would be mistaken however, to assume Galdós and Buñuel were atheistic. Buñuel got tired of his remark (“I’m still an atheist, thank God”) being quoted by people and in truth both of them never rejected Man’s need for faith.Read more ›

11 of 12 people found the following review helpful By Andres C. Salama on 10 Aug. 2008
Format: DVD
Spanish director Luis Buñuel career spanned almost 50 years, from 1929 to 1977. Arguably, his best films were those he made during his exile in Mexico - from the late forties to the early 60s. There he had to deal with very cheap budgets, and work in an industry interested mainly in churning commercial movies to unsophisticated audiences, yet he somehow managed to make interesting, thought provoking movies that have stand the test of time. This movie is based on a novel by Spanish author Benito Perez Galdos - and the adaptation is quite faithful, even if the setting is now early 20th century Mexico instead of early 20th century Spain. The protagonist, Nazarin, is a priest who tries to live a life that is as faithful as it can be to the one prescribed by Christ. The question many would ask is whether such endeavor would be possible, without incurring in the hostility, incomprehension and mockery of your fellow human beings. As it happens, he suffers a lot of indignities, yet he remains stubborn (until the controversial final shot) to this objective. I think Buñuel wanted to show Nazarin as a somewhat ridiculous figure, but perhaps inadvertently, his stubbornness (at least to this viewer) comes out as admirable. In any case, a great film.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Religious tale of man who takes the religion too seriously and creates all kinds of problems for himself. Set in a small village in Mexico you can almost smell the poverty coming through the screen. The sheer bleakness of the black and white setting is full of bare walls and wooden furniture.

Throughout the film the Communist message inherent within religion is broadcast loud and clear as our "hero" seeks to emulate the vows of Christ with literal effect. Protecting the poor, saving the weak and helping in times of crisis, he traverses the land with his followers. Meanwhile the forces of power gather around him to thwart his plans.

Very similar to the message of Don Quixote, the man tries to assist the outcast to find himself constantly trapped in a state of torpor and self immolation. It is a loud defiant message to those who cloak themselves in the mantle of religion, that they are hypocritical and deceitful, the real sense of Christian virtue is way beyond the law.
