"Tells the story of an early Christian ascetic -- modeled on Saint Simon Stylites -- who has lived atop a pillar, surrounded by a barren landscape, for six years, six months, and six days to prove his devotion to God.

A skeptic's vision of religious conviction, Luis Buñuel's short and sweet satire is one of his most renowned works of surrealism."--Container
