Original title

El extraño viaje

Year

1964

A black comedy, praised by critics, notable for its daring nature and fine interpretations. 
 

Ignacia, Paquita and Venancio are three unmarried siblings who live together. The first of them is a domineering despot, while the other two have an almost childish mentality. The monotony of the small village where they live is interrupted on Saturday nights by a band that comes to play from Madrid. On one of these nights, Paquita and Venancio hear noise coming from their sister’s room. When they go to find out what is going on, she sends them packing. Nevertheless, Paquita does not believe that Ignacia was alone in her room.
