Carlos Saura's (Cria!, Carmen) first commercial success in Spain, Peppermint Frappe radiates the influence of Surrealist director Luis Buñuel. The eerie story of a bachelor obsessed with his friend's wife explores the fierce conflict between repressive religious upbringing and sexual desire. Julian, a respected doctor devoted to the Catholic Church, and Pablo, a free spirit caught up in the modern ways quickly engulfing traditional Spain, are distinct opposites. When Julian meets Pablo's bride Elena, he imagines that she is the mysterious woman he had seen beating a drum at a Holy Week ritual, then attempts to transform his nurse Ana into a second Elena. This mesmerizing mixture of reality, illusion, and memories stars Jose Luis Lopez Vazquez (The Garden of Delights) as Julian and Geraldine Chaplin (Cria!) as both the temptress Elena and the shy Ana.
