Perhaps the crowning achievement of Bunuel's career, the film centres on an idealistic young nun named 'Viridiana'. Before she is allowed to take her final vows, the Mother Superior requests that she visit her uncle Don Jaime, who has 'selflessly' provided for the girl over the years. Having always considered him an unspeakable beast, she is surprised when he graciously welcomes her into his home. Just as graciously, he sets about to corrupt Viridiana beyond redemption - all because the girl resembles the wife that died on their wedding day
