Quite remarkable for its day...
Buñuel doesn't let go...he plays with emotion, lulling you into a false sense of empathy and then hits you between the eyes.
It's a bleak world - no-one is immune to lovelessness, disloyalty and an inherent cruelty.
A bleak depiction of humanity.
A group of juvenile delinquents live a violent and crime-filled life in the festering slums of Mexico City, and the morals of young Pedro are gradually corrupted and destroyed by the others.
