Two treats from Luis Buñuel’s Mexican period.
The Brute sees a landlord recruit an oaf to scare off tenants, while Susana has a rich family take in a (crazed) destitute woman.
Oaf shags landlord’s wife, woman shags everyone, recalling Renoir’s Boudu Saved From Drowning and pre-empting Buñuel’s own Viridiana.
Closer to the realism of Los Olvidados than the surrealism of Buñuel’s late French masterpieces, both films remain warm and tolerant as they ridicule the bourgeoisie, the Church and male libido.
