An effortlessly stunning work of film
on 12 July 2002
This has to be one of the most stunningly made dance films I have ever seen. Following along the original story lines of Bizet's Carmen not only the music, but the tale has been cleverly transposed to the aching passionate qualities of Flamenco. Although you think that you are watching a film about the makings of a stage production, Saura entices the viewer to realise that they are watching a re-enactment of the actual characters in the book amongst the cast.
Absolutley brilliant performances from all the dancers, and particularly from Antonio Gades, who has in the past brought this production to our London theatres such as Saddlers Wells.
A must for all world cinema fans.
