Facing difficulties in finding housing and employment, several family members turn to illegal or immoral activities in order to make ends meet, and the traditional family structure disintegrates. Cast Luis Peña as El Mellao María Asquerino as Pili Francisco Arenzana as Pepe Marisa de Leza as Tonia Ricardo Lucía as Manolo Pérez José Prada as Manuel Pérez Félix Dafauce as Don Roque, "el Chamberlain" María Francés as La madre Background Surcos is considered one of the very few—if not the only—Spanish neo-realist films from the era when the style was being created and popularized in Italy. The picture only escaped censorship because José María García Escudero, Spain's Chief of Cinematography, was progressive enough to value the film for its artistic merit.[2] The film dealt with issues virtually unseen during Franco's rule, including rural immigration into the cities, poverty, prostitution, unemployment, and class conflicts. Surcos is a view of the contradictions found in Franco's regime. The Catholic Church considered the film "deeply dangerous," yet political observers labeled the drama of "national interest." The film was not released until its controversial ending was removed.[3] Awards Wins Cinema Writers Circle Awards, Spain: CEC Award; Best Film; Best Supporting Actor, Félix Dafauce; Best Supporting Actress, Marisa de Leza; 1953.
