Carlos Saura – Stress-es tres-tres AKA Stress Is Three (1968)



‘Fernando, with his wife and life-long friend, Antonio, set out on a weekend together. Fernando begins to suspect his wife and Antonio of being in love, and his jealousy grows as he observes them in a situation he, himself, created.’

Carlos Saura on Stress-es tres-tres:

‘Despite the enormous success of Peppermint Frappe I felt on edge. I had told a story in that film, in the sense that a story with a very precise narrative thread was told. The reason for my dissatisfaction stemmed from the feeling that the story had trapped me and I wanted to be free of it. So I made Stress-es tres-tres which was a sort of liberation.’
