According to Luis Buñuel, Simone Signoret missed her husband Yves Montand so much that "on her way to join us in Mexico, she slipped some Communist documents into her passport, hoping to be turned away by American Immigration". See more »
First time I have heard a priest referred to as a "bible thumper."
It's only now that we are able to enjoy many of the films Luis Buñuel made during his time in Mexico. Sure, it won't rank with his classics like Le Charme discret de la bourgeoisie or Cet obscur objet du désir, but this South American action thriller has a charm all it's own, Make no mistake, La mort en ce jardin, also has pure Buñuel elements to it, especially in the third act.
Shark (Georges Marchal) and Djin (Simone Signoret) are certainly the most interesting characters in the first act. Shark may be a lout (Shut up Bible thumper!), but his skills come into play later. Djin is just hot.
Great action in the jungle and a beautiful setting in Mexico.
