|aBunuel's cynical and irreverent version of St. Simon Stylites, who serves God by standing on a pillar in the desert. Surrounded by typical Bun?uel characters (a corrupt dwarf, effeminate priests, grumbling peasants), Simon is tempted by the Devil in the form of a beautiful girl, and eventually falls from grace.
