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.

Entertaining and informative, although with some concerns
1 March 2004 | by See all my reviews

I confess an appreciation for any film which opens a new door into the previously unknown. Prior to seeing this film I was unaware of Garcia Lorca, and at the very least this film provided me with exposure to him and some of his work, and a small look at the Spanish civil war.

I also very much enjoy Andy Garcia, as well as Esai Morales. However, in retrospect, I believe Antonio Banderas would have been a better choice for the Garcia Lorca role.

The original title, "Death in Granada" was probably a more apt title, as the movie does tend to concentrate more on the adventures of Ricardo (Morales), but overall I was very satisfied. Heck, I now even own a book of Garcia Lorca's collected works! I'd say that speaks well enough for the film.
