Les Hurdes (Land Without Bread)
A surrealistic documentary portrait of the region of Las Hurdes, a remote region of Spain where civilisation has barely developed, showing how the local peasants try to survive without even the most basic utilities and skills.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Luis Bu˝uel at his most vehement"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"Bunuel's only documentary, a savage critique of life in the impoverished Las Hurdes section of Spain."
‑ Thomas Delapa, Boulder Weekly
"Today, Las Hurdes is remembered less for its politicized images than it is for Bu˝uel parodic manipulation of documentary style."
‑ Ed Gonzalez, Slant Magazine
