La cirugía

Language: Neutral Latin American Spanish


Practitioner Sergei Kuzmich Kuriatin replaces the hospital’s head doctor. Sacristan Vonmiglasov enters the visiting room with terrible pain in his tooth. Kuriatin asks him to sit on the chair and open his mouth. He claims that tooth surgery is a simple thing, all you need is practice and a steady hand.

The Surgery is a satire on the prejudices and customs of simple people. In this hyper-realistic version, the pain and suffering of the sacristan turns the stomach, causing compassion and laughter at the same time.
