Deneuve plays Tristana, a virginal young girl who goes to live with her guardian who eventually breaks through his facade of respectability and seduces her. She repays him a hundred-fold, preying on his jealousy and taunting him with perverse whimsies.
“A brilliant film! The work of a master at the height of his powers.”
Penelope Gilliatt

Vincent Canby
“A brilliant witches brew of sex and sadism.”
Bernard Drew
