I saw this film in Spain in 1993 and picked up the soundtrack; it is a wonderful story on the order of Latin American novelas about a flamenco singer caught between a father and a son of a very different social class while her guitarist secretly loves her and dares not say anything.
The period atmosphere (1920s)is beautiful, and excellently photographed.
It really made me sad when Rocio Jurado abandoned flamenco music for pop; this film was her "swan song". Unfortunately, this film appears to never have been released in the US, which is a loss to flamenco students and aficionados.
