Tristana and filming
of the film in Toledo.
Dazzling adaptation of the novel by Benito Porez Galdós
about a woman who seeks what little independence is available
to a young unmarried woman in turn-of-the-century Spain.
The director's touch can be seen when the aging roué
of an uncle (Rey) attempts to console the girl
after her leg has been amputated by saying she shouldn't despair,
some men will find her even more attractive now.
