Abismos de Pasión

Directed by Luis Buñuel | 1954
With Irasema Dilián, Jorge Mistral

Buñuel’s feverish adaptation of Emily Brontë’s classic novel of l’amour fou is a Surrealist’s delight: torrid gothic atmosphere, with barren Mexican landscapes imparting a funereal sense of doom, all building up to the deliriously unforgettable climax. The New York Times praised: “Of all of the Mexican films that Luis Buñuel made…[Wuthering Heights is] probably the work that's most full of riches.”

In Spanish with English subtitles
