The lady, the gypsy and the horseman
20 July 2008 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Lorna is a young painter living by herself in the countryside. A couple friend on their way to London leave Triana (a shy black-eyed gypsy girl) with her. Triana has terrible nightmares in which a naked man on a horse pursues her. And these nightmares show to be grounded on reality when the horseman materializes in real life. Triana and Lorna become more and more attached to each other... and the horseman breaks into their lives. Triana feels repulsion for him and Lorna feels curiosity. A fortune teller had told Triana that a horseman would appear in her life and that when she gave in to him, a tragedy would occur. Bizarre love triangle!

The story is stylishly told. Creative cameras show the countryside, the house and the high grasses surrounding it, the dream sequences, the wind moving the clothes on the clothes line, the river, the small animals hopping around, and to crown it all, beautiful erotic scenes. All this is punctuated by a beautiful soundtrack of Spanish guitars.

Classic Spanish pictures of naked women, a flamenco dance that will be a prelude for things to come, a gypsy party.... "La visita del vicio" (The coming of sin), like the countryside and people it portrays, is dreamy, erotic and atmospheric.
