Plot Summary

Viridiana, a young novice about to take her final vows as a nun, accedes, moved purely by a sense of obligation, to a request from her widowed uncle to visit him. Stirred by her resemblance to his late wife, he attempts to seduce her and tragedy ensues. In the aftermath, Viridiana tries to assuage her guilt by creating a haven for the destitute folk who live around her uncle's estate. But little good comes from these good intentions.

Trivia For the famous The Last Supper scene, the number of homeless people wasn't enough to match the actual amount of men present at The Last Supper, so Buñuel made three crew members dressed like beggars appear on the photo, then disappear. See more »
