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
The movie is about the life of Camarón, probably the best flamenco singer ever: How he starts in music, acknowledgement by public and early death due to cancer. In fact he movie is quite boring, almost anything happens but the main character singing. At any moment the plot is interesting (unless you are Camarón's supporter) and many of the characters are totally empty: for example Veronica Sanchez play as Camaron's wife, or the character of Camaron's best friend, which though important, are not very well build. The only good thing is Óscar Jaenada, he proves that when he wants, can act very well (a Goya totally deserved). His acting is outstanding and it is by far, the only reason to watch these movie, that is perhaps, too long for the things to tell. There are many better films, and except by Jaenada, it has anything good.
