La casa del pelícano ("The House of the Pelican") is a 1976 Mexican thriller film.[1] It was shot in 1976 and released in 1977. Main themes of this film are rape and difficult possessive relationship between mother and her son.

Young Enrique Álvarez Félix played Nilo in this film.[2] This was his most famous film role. Nilo was castrated at the end of the film, and this was interesting for some spectators who noticed that Enrique had a difficult relationship with his mother in his real life.[3]

This film was based on the play Nilo, mi hijo by Antonio González Caballero.[4]


Elementary school teacher Margarita Ramírez tries to make her life beautiful once again with her son Nilo. He is a result of a rape in a distant city, but Margarita loves him nonetheless.[5]

Nilo, the son of the madman of the city, tries to grow up in a common way, but his mother overprotects him and raise him away from other people.[6]
