Los Olvidados
(Los Olvidados)

by Luis BUÑUEL


In a Mexico City slum, El Jaïbo has escaped from a correctional home to return to his gang. Together they mug a blind man and rob a legless cripple. But El Jaïbo wants above all to take revenge on Julien, who he accuses of denouncing him. Accompanied by young Pedro, El Jaïbo lures Julien into a trap and kills him. As the only witness to the murder, Pedro then desperately tries to return to the straight and narrow…

What the filmportrays is not so much poverty as a state of deep wretchedness, to the point of surpassing an often over-narrow definition of realism.
