Spain 1970
Directed by
Luis Bunuel
105 minutes

4 stars


In a transposition of a story by Benito Pérez Galdós who wrote Nazarin(1958) to provincial Spain in the 1920s, the setting of Bunuel's own childhood, Fernando Rey plays the lustful uncle of the beautiful Tristana (Catherine Deneuve in one of her many such roles of the decade). Although looking rather dated this is still a powerful indictment of bourgeois false consciousness. BH
