Abstract

The film Viridiana, directed by Luis Buñuel in 1961 gives a role protagonist to a group of beggars, with social characteristics and behavior radically different to that society was used to appreciate in this group of outcasts. Through language, the director wants to show the cruelty of some of the protagonists, who behave cynically to achieve their evil intentions, even reaching the achievement of crimes as serious as the crime or the attempted rape. Buñuel unmasks the marginalized to strip them of the docile and submissive role that had up to then.
