Los olvidados

Back to listing

This masterpiece, as intense as when it was made, is by far the most popular film among our panel. Buñuel spent a long time in the poor neighbourhoods of Mexico, gathering material which would inform his tale of Jaibo, a young delinquent and jail escapee. The film caused a scandal when it was released and was only screened again after it won the Best Director Award at the 1951 Festival de Cannes.

Obra maestra de una intensidad intacta, Los olvidados es de lejos el filme más nombrado por nuestro panel de expertos. Buñuel se documentó durante un largo período de tiempo en los barrios pobres de Ciudad de México para componer el retrato de Jaibo, un joven jefe de pandilla escapado de un correccional. La cinta provocó un escándalo tras el estreno y fue retirada del cartel hasta que en 1951 ganó el Premio a la mejor dirección en Cannes.
