Tristana

Directed by Luis Bunuel
Starring Catherine Deneuve, Fernando Rey, Franco Nero
Run time 95 min

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

A masterwork.
