The movie will cover the life of Camarón de la Isla (Jaenada), the legendary Spanish flamenco cantaor, from his beginning until his death. It tells around the relationships Camarón de la Isla struck up with people such as his wife La Chispa (Sánchez) and guitarists Paco de Lucía, Tomatito and Paco Cepero. Written by
For some people this film can be a good opportunity of knowing more about Camarón de la Isla, and it is true. But I do not believe that those people say that this film is great. And it is not.
It summarizes the life of this man, but one hour and average to see singing this man is a complete boredom. The film in itself is boring, at least does not entertain to all the one that sees it, not me, because I do not like the flamenco and I do not believe that in the future I would like it. The actor who plays Camarón, Óscar Jaenada, does it very very well. His actuation is amazing. All the other actors of the film make either their work very good (like the actor who plays Paco de Lucía,too) and they are very well characterized, except the actress who plays Camarón's wife, Verónica Sánchez. She is not very credible as La Chispa. She is the only actress of this movie that does not act very good. Of the others,the clothes and the make up are in favor very well.
In summary,see it if Camarón interests to you and if it does not interest to you,do not see it. I don't recommend it.
