A man and a woman have secretly married. He belongs to a rich family and she is a poor actress and singer that is failing to success in her career. One day, he decides to tell his family that he's married and flies to Italy, where they live, but the flight has an accident and he dies. The man's brother goes to Spain to look for the body, and he discovers not only that his brother is married, but that his brother's wife is pregnant. She only asks the family for his education. Years go by, and Marisol, the girl's name will be ten years old soon. She lives in a school, and his uncle and mother visit her once a year. His mother has told her that she is a famous and rich actress so that the girl would not be shy with her friends about her origins. So, she can't never take her daughter with her in the summer, or she will know the truth. But Marisol's grandfather, who hates her mother for "having stolen his son", wants to meet the little girl, and he asks her to go to Italy during the summer... Written by
For a little girl in the Amazon River Basin, Marisol was the height of cool.
The movie took me a way to a place where dance and song were everyday matters, and fostered a lifelong love of the passionate music of Flamenco. The fiery music and dance struck a chord that still resonates even now, many years later. The rhythm of Marisol's flashing feet and fingers, the tale as it unfolded, led me to love the little girl who starred in this film. To this day I think about Marisol. To this day I associate flamenco with her, and have her to thank for the continuing love I have for it. And, when Paco Pena's MISA FLAMENCA came to DC, I went to see it, falling in love with flamenco all over again.
