To those confused by the seemingly nonexistent titles Gina and Evil Eden in the manifest of director Luis Bunuel, we will attempt to clarify: Both of these titles are alternate names for Bunuel's 1956 Diamond Hunters, a French/Mexican production originally released as La Mort en ce Jardin in France and La Muerte est En Jardin in Mexico. Both titles can be literally translated as Death in the Garden--which is yet another alternate title for this modest little escapade. The film is one of the most accessible and linear of the director's works: it is an austere tale of refugees from various oppressive societies who seek the means to escape. All of the principals converge in an idyllic South American rain forest, only to succumb to greed while hunting for a diamond mine. The fact that tragedy lurks within the forest explains the title Evil Eden, while the presence of Simone Signoret explains the title Gina.
