Directed by Carlos Saura • 1967 • Spain
Starring Geraldine Chaplin, José Luis López Vázquez, Alfredo Mayo
The first of Carlos Saura’s many collaborations with Geraldine Chaplin is a darkly comic psychological thriller that casts the actor in a VERTIGO-esque double role as both the glamorous, unattainable object of a rigidly conservative physician’s obsession and the unassuming nurse he attempts to make over in her image. Saura dedicated the film to Luis Buñuel, whose surrealist spirit looms large in this provocative allegory for the frustrated desires of Franco-era Spain.
