remarks on bizz-2 commentary
15 September 2004 | by See all my reviews

The story of Merimée, in which inspired Bizzet for his famous Opera, tells us of a Gitana (Gypsy,Romaní) from Echalar, a small village to the North of Navarre, north of Spain. According to the Merimée fiction, Carmen and his mad lover spoke basque. So, this is not a mistake of the film, which, in many ways deserves, certainly, criticism: the film lack rhythm, and the actors are very bad indeed. I think, the opening scene, when all the women appear in the cigar factory, is great, a scene of great tension and furious wild force. Unfortunately, the "great expectations" this opening create on the spectator, are certainly not accomplished. The film goes wandering, without connection, without unity: the camera looks to too many stories and places, been not able to relate them to each other.
