  1. what a perfect way to end this flamenco film trilogy by Carlos Saura by inverting their order and actually seeing the first film he made , last and thus being shown the masterly discipline and spontaneous passion of all the artists involved, from the director to the dancers and from the prop man to the camera crew and from the guitarists to the “cantaores”…
    as he did in the previous three films we’ve seen of him (Tango, El Amor Brujo and Carmen) Carlos Saura introduced us to the performers by showing them and the set(s) before they become characters and settings for the story…
    so instead of tricking us into believing the “reality of the story” he exposed us to the naked, unmade-up face of their humanity and then capture our attention with their pure artistry…
    memorable moments: the winged flutterings of the lovers ending with their laying embrace on the floor, the static camera eye showing empty spaces being occupied by the dancing characters, the roving, circular camera eye that catches the paso-doble dancers @ the wedding changing the rhythm and movements of classical flamenco and the final duel in veeeeeeery sloooooow motion and the many reminders of the original figures, moves, dress and attitude of what became “argentine tango”…

    what do you think ??
