Moved purely by a sense of obligation, she does so. Her uncle is moved by her resemblance to his late wife to attempt to seduce Viridiana, 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 from these good intentions, too, comes little good.
Plot: Viridiana is preparing to start her life as a nun when she is sent, somewhat unwillingly, to visit her aging uncle, Don Jaime. He supports her; but the two have met only once. Jaime thinks Viridiana resembles his dead wife. Viridiana has secretly despised this man all her life and finds her worst fears proven when Jaime grows determined to seduce his pure niece. Viridiana becomes undone as her uncle upends the plans she had made to join the convent.

Misery, poverty, (bad) religion… Buñuel’s tribute to Franco’s work.
“Viridiana” and “Tierra Sin Pan” (a documentary) are two of the most cutting portraits of Spanish misery and poverty in the 20 that passed after 1936’s Civil War. Buñuel had no mercy and put everybody in their place.
The pious Viridiana (Silvia Pinal, wonderful!) who leaves the convent to come to live with his uncle in the country. His uncle (Fernando Rey, magnificent!), a man defeated by life who lives in the past and, finally, suicides. His cousin (Paco Rabal, the man!), which come to the country house looking for his inheritance. The tramps that Viridiana takes in… Some of the best characters in the history of cinema, and some of the best sequences ever filmed (that one with the tramps celebrating such a crazy party).
A fierce look against Spanish society, against religion and against the human condition itself. I’d pay for watching the face of dictator Franco’s censors when they watched “Viridiana”. They could have Buñuel shot for that. Luckily, he went to Mexico.
Well, this is a movie to talk about for hours and hours… Anyway, you just watch it and prepare to feel what cinema’s about.
