One of the last films ever directed by Spain's prolific auteur filmmaker Luis Bunuel, Tristana follows a similar vein as That Obscure Object of Desire in its portrayal of an older man pursuing a younger woman, but this time all sympathy goes to the fairer sex. Played by Catherine Deneuve, the titular protagonist deals her elder caretaker, played by Fernando Rey, whose obligations to provide for her and carnal desires to consume her drive her into the arms of another man. Deneuve plays her part beautifully in the game of lecherous cat and youthful mouse and for all of Rey's charisma and charm, the darker side of humanity shines through and creates the disturbing relationship that sets Tristana apart from other films like it.
