A young woman, orphaned by the death of her mother, is seduced by the older man to whose guardianship she is entrusted. When she leaves him for a young artist, and eventually returns to him following the amputation of her leg, the film becomes a haunting study of a human relationship in which the power changes hands, a lifelong theme of the famed Spanish director. Presented in partnership with Instituto Cervantes as part of the Bank of America Free Thursday Film Series.
