Synopsis

Full of offbeat images and symbolism, Buñuel mixes realism and surrealism in what is not only one of his most powerful films but also one of the greatest and most heart-wrenching films about poverty and childhood.

MUBI's take

Luis Buñuel’s first international success, Los Olvidados is a notable film from the supreme surrealist (the director of Un chien analou, after all) in its realism—staring down the problem of juvenile delinquency, this is a masterpiece of its genre. Effective, uncompromising and influential.
