Tristana fica órfã e é recolhida por Don Lope, libertino em decadência sexual e financeira que a pretende iniciar aos valores que ele julga serem verdadeiros. Tristana torna-se sua amante mas, progressivamente enojada de Don Lope, apaixona-se por um jovem pintor. Tristana parte com o pintor mas regressa pouco depois, com uma infeção numa perna. A perna tem que ser amputada, para gáudio de Don Lope, que julga que assim Tristana será só dele. Tristana acaba por casar-se com o velho e um dia, ao arejar o quarto dele, provoca-lhe uma pneumonia de que ele vem a morrer. (Leopardo Filmes)

inglês A powerful film that surprisingly isn't too demanding for the audience, yet it's still hard to get into because you'll constantly feel that something is off and that everything is bound to go wrong, with no hope for a completely happy ending. The cast is excellent, which is only confirmed by Luis Buñuel's skillful direction. Yet, it couldn't captivate me. ()

inglês This film is worth seeing mainly because of the excellent performance of Catherine Deneuve as Tristana. The transformation from an innocent, quiet girl to a life-loving young lady demanding love, and then into a bitter and even vengeful woman is truly breathtaking. Fernando Rey, however, excellently supported her, portraying the aging hypocritical lecher Don Lope more than convincingly. The successful indictment of the fallen morality of the Spanish middle class in the 1920s with a strong religious undertone is signed by none other than the eternal critic and surrealist, Luis Buñuel.

inglês Compared to Belle de Jour, there’s too much Fernando Rey, to whom I am allergic, and typical Buñuel jokes and ideas, but this time they are put together in a completely unacceptable collage. Regardless of Deneuve's interesting transformation from naive little girl to arrogance itself. Franco Nero is also really weak. ()

inglês To be honest, I prefer Belle de Jour over Tristana - it is more playful and at the same time much more sarcastic than the relatively depressing Tristana, whose central theme is bitterness and resulting hatred. However, both films feature the wonderful Catherine Deneuve and the film works primarily thanks to her presence and excellent performance. It is not just a film about the relationship between an older man and an immature girl, but also a reflection of the society of its time, the dependent position of women, and the clash of the modern world with old orders and value systems. When Don Lope confronts a young artist and challenges him to a duel, he receives a punch in the nose instead of acceptance. This is how the world changes, where there is no longer room for old patriarchal nobility. Luis Buñuel is a sharp critic of the hypocrisy of old bourgeois and aristocratic rules, and his disdain for the world of so-called "better" people is evident in many dialogues. Overall impression: 85%. ()
