Contents/Summary

Summary
Due to a childhood experience with the death of the family maid (under erotic circumstances,) Archibaldo grows up with psychopathic killer tendencies toward women. He is constantly thwarted in his efforts to carry out any muderrs. The film not only pokes wicked fun at the decadent bourgeoisie and the Latin male, but also at the director's own obsessions - foot fetishism and surrealism. The film's oddball humor links it with Bunuel's later classic "Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie."
