Film: That Obscure Object of Desire (1977)
  • Jill Craigie Cinema, Roland Levinsky Building

Save event

After dumping a bucket of water on a beautiful young woman from the window of a train car, wealthy Frenchman, Mathieu (Fernando Rey), regales his fellow passengers with the story of the dysfunctional relationship between himself and the young woman, a fiery, 19-year-old flamenco dancer, Conchita (played alternately by Carole Bouquet and Angela Molina). What follows is a tale of cruelty, depravity and lies – the very building blocks of love.
