    A Woman Without Love

    Presented by at Harvard Film Archive

    August 20, 2012


    A Woman Without Love

    Directed by Luis Buñuel. With Rosario Granados, Julio Villarreal,
    Tito Junco
    Mexico 1952, 35mm, b/w, 85 min. Spanish with English subtitles
    A more reserved side of Buñuel is revealed in this moving adaptation of a Guy de Maupassant story about a long-suffering wife and mother who falls desperately in love with a kinder, younger man who promises her the kind of caring relationship she has longed for. Held back by love for her son and obligation to her cold-hearted husband, the woman is torn by the wrenching pulls of love and duty. While more stylistically restrained than his other Mexican films, A Woman Without Love is also forcibly direct in its attack on the cruel indifference towards women of marriage and motherhood and social institutions.
