The Great Madcap

Director: Luis Bunuel

Bunuel's dark comedy tells of a Mexican family's attempts to change their selfish and hedonistic father.
Playing like a socially conscious south-of-the-border take on the American screwball comedies of Preston Sturges and Frank Capra, The Great Madcap is an undiscovered gem!  


Mexico.   1949.   B&W.    91 mins.


"A film of a hundred small delights." CinePassion
