The Stilts ★★★ 1984

From modern Spanish cinema's preeminent director, this is a study of sexual dynamics revolving around a doomed love triangle. Aging professor Gomez wants young Del Sol to commit to him, but she won't; she has another, younger lover. Overwrought at times, but well acted. In Spanish with English subtitles. 95m/C VHS . SP Laura Del Sol, Francesco Rabal, Fernando Fernan-Gomez; D: Carlos Saura.
