Illusion Travels by Streetcar

90 minutes 1953

A surprisingly gentle folk comedy directed Luis Buñuel during his "commercial" Mexican period. Two streetcar conductors find that their car is going to be retired and take it out for a last run through the streets of Mexico City. The undoubted highlight is Buñuel's interpretation of Paradise Lost, performed by the local dramatic society. Not a great Buñuel, but it has a certain warmth that his other films often lack—to say the least. In Spanish with subtitles.
