In Berlanga’s 1961 film Plácido, an impoverished truck driver in rural Spain becomes involved in a Christmas Eve “Invite a poor person to dinner” event sponsored by a cookware manufacturer. The fast-paced, darkly comic farce takes a satirical look at the true meaning of charity, contrasting charity from the head—the cold, calculated kind practiced by a hypocritical upper class—with charity from the heart.
