Two of Mexico's finest actors star in this fiery melodrama by master director Luis Buñuel. Pedro Armendariz (Maria Candelaria; Three Godfathers) plays a physically strong but simple-minded slaughterhouse worker who is hired by a brutal landlord to evict unwanted tenants. His life is complicated when he falls for the slumlord's seductive wife, played by Ariel-winner Katy Jurado (Broken Lance; High Noon).
Bold, brutal, and blistering, The Brute is a highlight of Buñuel's Mexican period, in which he fit his themes and ideas into the popular Mexican melodrama.
