Nilo, mi hijo

Nilo, mi hijo is the most famous work by Caballero. It was filmed under the title La casa del pelícano ("The House of the Pelican").[11][12]

The main character Nilo was played by well known and beloved Enrique Álvarez Félix.[13] Nilo's raped mother Margarita was Jacqueline Andere, and young Daniela Romo also appeared.[14][15]

The film was shocking for some commentators who noticed a connection between castration of Nilo and Enrique's difficult relationship with his mother.[16]

On the poster for the film an egg is depicted. It is pierced by scissors. This is a symbolic representation of emasculation.
