Storyline

The story of Salomé told as one of extreme love and vengeance. A director prepares a troupe of flamenco dancers for a performance. He summarizes the story and describes his spring for the drama's action: Salomé's attraction to John the Baptist. When the prophet rejects her, she seeks revenge. We meet the principals. We watch rehearsals, a dress rehearsal, and then the performance. The movie is both about the performance and about preparation for performance. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

why am I a Saura's fan?
1 August 2004 | by (São Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

I am always amazed by Saura's ability in catching the essence of things and doubly (triply) stress them: a) as beauty (images, color, music: Bodas de Sangre, Carmen, El Amor Brujo, Salomé, Goya); b) as metaphors (Ana y los Lobos, for instance); c) as a concerned view of social problems and facts (Ana y los Lobos; El Dorado; Mamá cumple 100 años; Goya; Tango...). He has the impressive quality of presenting, at the same time, deep political and sociological analysis, illuminated overviews of Spanish culture (don't forget this!), additionally being able to show them in the highest terms of aesthetics... Spanish culture is one of the richest in Europe and the world. Through the perception of his own cultural heritage, Saura contributes brilliantly to make it universal. My family is of Spanish origin. Saura has made evident to me many roots of Latin American history and culture ("where am I?"; "where do I come from?"... "WHAT am I?").
