Trivia

In 1960, when Charlton Heston arrived in Spain to film " El Cid" , he met up with Orson Welles in Grenada to discuss a movie based on Lorca's life. They arranged meetings with local politicians and the authorities, but nothing ever came of the project. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Lorca: When the pier forms collapsed under crumpling sound of daisies, I realized that they had murdered me. They combed the cafes, the graveyards, the churches; they pried open coffins and ransacked chests and cabinets. They smashed 3 skulls to rip out their gold teeth, but they couldn't find me. They couldn't find me. No, they couldn't find me.

Blood Of A Poet in a Full Blooded Film
5 March 2004 | by (amsterdam) – See all my reviews

Some of the other commentators could be right: this film might not be totally accurate, historically speaking. But than again, it is a film. And it does portray the life & death of this astonishing Poet & Playwright & Person, FEDERICO GARCIA LORCA, very well.

The film has two story lines, and the second (or first ?) obscures the attention for the Man of the Title every now and then. But the film keeps the viewer on edge, it is intriguing and in a way very exciting.

Andy Garcia has not been better in years, and the cabby has always been a miraculous actor. Others are very well too, so this film must be well directed.

Every individual who is caught by the story, and is getting interested in Lorca, is an asset to this film. And who knows, maybe we all start to read his beautiful work again in great numbers.

The film is very beautifully shot. For those who are intrigued by Lorca and want to know more: please buy his work, but also: there is the other film on his death. 'LORCA, MUERTE DE UN POETA' of '87 (you could check out my comment on that one too..). Available on DVD thanks to the lovely Suevia Films-label, in Spanish but with English subtitles, and on the 'net' available at the Spanish Barnes & Noble, El Corte Ingles. This film is less glamorous than THE DISAPPEARANCE..., yet breathtakingly beautiful, and airs a bit more (in an unobtrusive way) of Lorca's poetry.

Watch both these films, you won't be disappointed ! Might even send you looking for some fabulous books !!
