    I'm in America, but I think the ratio is better in Europe. Also keep in mind they wouldn't be showing bad foreign movies on TCM (as well as other outlets)… I consider Russia or the USSR a part of Asia, but culturally (movies), I guess I'll add them here.. But I won't include movies from the UK. I'll also omit movies by European directors whose entire movie is in English (My Dinner With Andre, for example)..

    I ALWAYS type in keywords in the search (top right) - didn't see it.

    Mexican, not European. As discussed in the other thread on European cinema, the consensus within the film industry is that it’s the origin of the production that is important in this regard, not the birthplace of the director. Buñuel was living and working in Mexico at the time. The production company, the crew: everything about this film marks it out as a Mexican production.

    Thanks for the correction.. I just assumed because HE was Spanish that it was made in Spain.

    No worries.

    Because of the Spanish Civil War, Buñuel made relatively few films in Spain, or for Spanish production companies. He worked a lot in France before moving to Mexico for many years, then returning to Europe for that great run of classics toward the end of his career.
