Much better now that it's restored
28 June 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Before the restoration it was like a travelogue with a few dance sequences.

Now that it's been restored (by Charles Doble) it is like a totally different film. Much better balanced than in previously seen versions where much of the story & the ballets were cut leaving it as little more than a travelogue. The flamenco between Antonio (I) and Carmen Rojas is the sexiest dancing I've ever seen on screen.

However, it does still show the lack of Emeric Pressburger. There are plot holes here & there and nobody can work out why Anthony Steel is there.

But do try to see it, preferably on the big screen (CinemaScope) that it was made for and makes good use of.
