Product Description

The third part of director Carlos Saura's flamenco trilogy. Based on the ballet by Manuel de Falla, the story follows Candela (Cristina Hoyos) who, after marrying José (Juan Antonio Jiménez) in a pre-arranged marriage, is widowed when José dies defending his lover, Lucía (Laura del Sol). Shortly afterwards, Carmelo (Antonio Gades), who has loved Candela since he was a boy, is wrongly arrested and imprisoned for José's death. After his release, Carmelo finally declares his love for Candela, but although she is now free to marry, Candela remains haunted by the ghost of José, who reappears every night to dance with her.

The first copy had a badly currupted sound track. The second produced a dialogue box on the screen saying it could not be played.
I hope I was reimbursed, but have heard nothing from you. Such parts that I saw I have to say were disappointing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dated 1 July 2012
Format:DVD|Amazon Verified Purchase
This is more of a movie than a stage production to start with. It may have worked 30 years ago, but today it looks pretty dated and cliched in its approach. But all the same, the music is pretty much well sung and the visuals well enacted. I would not rave about it today, but still buy it because of the great quality of the performance of music and singing. About time that Real Madrid did a better job of it on a live stage and put it into a blu-ray disc......
