The film adopts a loose, fragmentary approach, depicting the lives of a bourgeois couple who engage in extramarital affairs. The title of the film refers to the 29 ‘dark years’ of the Franco dictatorship in Spain.
Starkly shot in black-and-white, Nocturno 29 is the moody debut from renaissance man Pere Portabella (experimental filmmaker, senator, intellectual and producer of Buñuel’s Viridiana!). His fragmentary ’68 masterpiece stars Lucia Bosé and was co-scripted by the great poet Joan Brossa.
