Hi

This Sunday The Independent is giving away Luis Bunuel's classic film Viridiana, winner of the prestigious Palme dOr.

Perhaps the crowning achievement of Bu?'s career, the film centres on an idealistic young nun named Viridiana (Silvia Pinal). Before she is allowed to take her final vows, the Mother Superior requests that she visit her uncle Don Jaime (Fernando Rey), who has selflessly provided for the girl over the years. Having always considered him an unspeakable beast, she is surprised when he graciously welcomes her into his home. Just as graciously, he sets about corrupting Viridiana beyond redemption - all because she resembles his wife who died on their wedding day.

This is the first film I've seen on RottenTomatoes.com to have scored 100% fresh

First post so shoot me down in flames
