Feature film

Original title

Muerte de un ciclista



One of the masterpieces by the director Juan Antonio Bardem. The story, full of symbolisms, bitterly criticises classism during that time in history.

The wife of a rich industrialist and her lover, a university lecturer, hit a cyclist with their car. They refuse to help him and leave him badly hurt at the roadside for fear of their relationship being exposed. They drive off, but after that they are inundated with feelings of guilt.
