THE BRUTE – 81m 12A MEXICO
Set in the Mexico City slums, it tells the story of a brawny slaughter-house worker, Pedro (Armendáriz), with more muscle than brain power. Pedro is hired by a ruthless landlord, Don Andres (Andrés Soler), to clear out some troublemaking tenants ending in fatal consequences. Pedro’s troubles begin to build up as he begins an affair with the landlord’s wife as well as the daughter of one of the tenants. With fabulous nighttime sequences shot by Mexico’s great cinematographer Agustín Jiménez, this is an opportunity not to be missed.
