A sad tale of love and bullfights, Hemingway style
14 July 2001 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Because of one weak link -- the unfulfilled love between Jake (Ty Power) and Brett (Ava Gardner) -- a series of futile events take place, also of unrequited love that each involved player has to deal with, some through anger others through forgetfulness in partying and drink. However, Saturday night revelry runs its course and relentlessly a Monday morning awaits all.

It's a kind of roller-coaster ride at first where the individuals seem so intent on taking from life all they can get from it, as if they were soon to leave it behind, an aftermath no doubt of the First War when most had no tomorrows to live or plan for.

I've seen this movie many times and it still draws my attention, that's how excellent the actors and settings are, not to mention the spectacular photography of the Pamplona bull run (always dangerous and still so even to this day) and the pageantry of the bullfight scenes in the ring.

This is one movie that I easily recall most scenes from because they are so much a part of how real life is and not how we wish it could be. A thoughtful tale of life's experiences.
