CASTLE OF PURITY
EL CASTILLO DE LA PUREZA
1973, Azteca Films, 110 min, Mexico, Dir: Arturo Ripstein

Gabriel Lima (Claudio Brook) is so determined to protect his loved ones from the evils of the world that he keeps them locked up at home. There wife Beatriz (Rita Macedo) and the couple’s children (Arturo Beristain, Gladys Bermejo and Diana Bracho in her first major role) help run the family business – making rat poison. As they near adulthood, the kids begin to challenge their father’s version of life beyond the “castle” walls, and Gabriel’s behavior becomes increasingly unstable. Inspired by a true story, this Mexican cinema classic brims with the obsession and absurdity of Luis Buñuel’s best films. In Spanish with English subtitles.
