The Cinematheque at the Capitol Theatre
France, Italy, Spain | 1970 | Luis Bu˝uel
Catherine Deneuve, Fernando Rey, and Franco (Django) Nero star in this late Buñuel classic that has been unavailable in a good color print for at least three decades! But tonight we will show a glorious new digital restoration on the Capitol Theatre’s big screen. Set in Toledo (Spain) during the early 1930s, Tristana is a perverse black comedy about desire, death, and deformity in which a progressive-thinking old nobleman (Rey) lusts after his virginal, orphaned young ward (Deneuve), whom he is able to seduce but not possess. Buñuel, a lifelong surrealist and anarchist, is the director of Un Chien Andalou, Belle de Jour, The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie, et al.
