Tristana is a young Spanish woman left to the care of Don Lope, a protective but impoverished aristocrat. Don sells his possessions to avoid manual labor and champions the causes of the dispossessed and downtrodden of society. He takes advantage of the vulnerable Tristana, who leaves him when she falls in love with Horacio. Unable to commit to him, she returns to Don Lope when she falls ill. He asks for her hand in marriage, and she accepts after losing her leg to cancer. She chooses to remain in a passionless union rather than be subject to the harsh realities of a society that refuses to change to the needs of women. Taken from the novel by celebrated author Benito Perez Galdos.

Jeeja Yanin is the only standout in a over the top or utterly bland cast with RZA as the worst over acting his entire way through. A paper thin and utterly absurd plot don't help when the films dialogue tries to play it straight and a jarring tone shift throughout. While there are a few neat fight scenes many come off as bland with some awful visual effects that hindrance the decent direction.

But that's the point and the intention and the story's told with a great deal of excellence as are the roles performed. A wonderful meditation on faith and doubt.
Allan C (de) wrote: This was the American release version of the film, which cut out a great deal of the original Japanese version and inserted a great deal of scenes starting Raymond Burr, who also narrated a lot of the film. There was a to more of a political context in the Japanese version, with commentary on American imperialism and the the lasting effects of the a-bomb. In the American version, it's simply a giant monster smashing stuff real good, which actually works pretty well. The story and build up to the Godzilla attacks are all that interesting, but the special effects for the Godzilla attacks work pretty well and are still a to of fun. Since this film was in black and white, Godzilla actually seemed to look more menacing and had a more serious tone, as compared to the color sequels where the rubber suit was more obvious and the target audience for Godzilla fighting King Kong, giant moths or evil robots were squarely aimed at children. The Japanese version "Gojira" was certainly not a kids film and although this Americanized version of the film dumbs down the original with it's Raymond Burr narration and inserts, it's still solid entertainment.

That's a rare thing, and it's only possible with this mad yet successful story and script. I just love the idea behind the whole thing as it also allows for these surprisng social narratives and brilliant character interactions to come together really well. The reason the experience you have watching it is so great though is that it's all delivered so expertly, thanks to an excellent performance from Affleck behind the camera, and from his strong supporting cast in front of it.WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE: That 'mad' story is just a little too mad for you to genuinely get attatched to the core relationship. That isn't helped either by the lack of 'show not tell' when it comes to the characterisation.VERDICT: A thrilling ride that engages you with it's heart on one side and it's gritty elements on the other. Well done Affleck.
