Fabulous rendition of Romeo y Juliet
4 December 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is a classic Flamenco must see. The final film of the famous Carmen Amaya. Gritty, lovely and very languid in its style. A good reflection of 60's gypsy life along with the beauty of the people themselves, he captures the children with a very precise and unique cinematography style. Quintisential Spanish film, not released in Canada and often difficult to find. Worth searching out, even if you don't speak Spanish - you will understand the film, due to its clear storytelling style (and the fact that it is loosely based on Romeo and Juliet). For the flamencos out there, you will see the gritty real gitano style dancing - bare feet, fury and individualism soar in each dance. Even the children dance. It is a beautiful movie.
