José Luis López Vázquez,
Ladislao Vadja leads us to the world bullfighting with this good film. His good work as director, a good allocation of resources and prominent figures of bullfighting, gets make this film a work essential for those who love the world bullfighting, and for those who want to see the inside of a bullfight in the 1950. Vadja shows us the fear of the bull in the face of matador, the rivalry between old and young figures of the world bullfighting, the thin line between the fervor and the rejection of the public. It also shows the drama and desperation of the "spontaneous", all this with a in an environment very well portrayed what it was Spain in the decade of the 1950. A magnificent film of Ladislao Vadja that i still consider essential for lovers of bullfighting
