- Synopsis / Plot
- Orphaned as a young woman, Tristana is taken in by well-respected, yet impoverished aristocrat Don Lope. It's not long before Tristana's entry into his life awakens desires and he takes advantage of her vulnerable situation, rationalising that she’d fare worse on the streets. Seducing her into a twisted and possesive relationship. When Tristana meets the painter Horacio, they fall in love and she flees Don Lope. Two years later she is forced to return home, under devastating circumstances. "Tristana" is a twisted, haunting study of sexual politics and the concept of freedom.
