Storyline

Pamplona (Spain), 1975: Dr. Navarro, a famous doctor in the city, feels strongly attracted to Juana, his nurse, who is also in love with the doctor. Navarro, however, moved by his strong religious convictions (in fact, he is a numerary member of Opus Dei) remains faithful to his wife and tries by all means to prevent that their relations with Juana break through professional boundaries. For the purpose of that, he orders the nurse will sent to another hospital. This will push Juana to take the initiative and provoke the doctor during San Fermines. Written by jsanchez

Awful movie + Good documentary
26 April 2009 | by (Reus, Spain) – See all my reviews

Another one of the terrible productions from the worst period of Spanish cinema, awful but with a couple of good things. The plot is your typical erotic stuff, a doctor that feels sexually attracted to his beautiful nurse and that begins a relationship with her. Of course this is just an excuse to show Cantudo and a couple of other actresses in situations more or less erotic.

The good things I mention is that the movie is shot in Pamplona during the San Fermín days and it can be seen as a good documentary of the time about that tradition. So, between so much nudity and emptiness, you can see shot on first hand and with a film camera, the "chupinazo", the "encierros", the arrival to the square, etc. A peculiar characteristic that makes "La trastienda" not a film to discard completely if only because of that footage. The rest, as I said, is horrible.
