Tristana (Bunuel, 1970): Cine Lumiere, 3.30pm

This film, part of the Catherine Deneuve season at Cine Lumiere, also screens on other dates including Sunday 28th January when the movie will be introduced by film critic and programmer Roberto Oggiano. Full details here.

Chicago Reader review:
Luis Buñuel’s 1970 masterwork, adapted from a novel by Benito Perez Galdos. Catherine Deneuve is a young woman unhappy with the constraints of turn-of-the-century Spanish society; her mild revolt is rewarded by an amputated leg. Buñuel conjures with Freudian imagery, outrageous humor, and a quiet, lyrical camera style to create one of his most complex and complete works, a film that continues to disturb and transfix.
