Blow-Up (1967)
Based on the short story "Las babas del diablo" (Blow-up), from the book Las armas secretas.

About the short story:
Unread by the moment. However this book is quite high in my wishlist.

About the movie:
A successful mod photographer in London whose world is bounded by fashion, pop music, marijuana, and easy sex, feels his life is boring and despairing. But in the course of a single day he accidentally captures on film the commission of a murder. The fact that he has photographed a murder does not occur to him until he studies and then blows up his negatives, uncovering details, blowing up smaller and smaller elements, and finally putting the puzzle together.
