Storyline

As a painter in the court of King Carlos IV, Goya - played by the great Lithuanian actor Donatas Banionis (The Red Tent, Solaris) - has attained wealth and reputation. He believes in King and Church, yet he is also a Spaniard who dearly loves his people. This contradiction presents him with a dilemma. Based on Lion Feuchtwanger's novel, Goya is one of ten East German films originally shot in 70mm. This release is the director's cut and shows the influence of great filmmakers from Buñuel and Saura, to Eisenstein. Goya was nominated for the Golden Prize at the 1971 Moscow International Film Festival. Written by DEFA Film Library

How can this wonderful film be so little known? Less than 10 votes? See it! The film is a biopic of Francis Goya, the brilliant Spanish painter. It centers around his later years, when he is already a respected artist, and covers his troubles with both women and Inquisition. And especially gives a good presentation of his work.
