Trivia

The orange long-sleeved gown with accordion-pleat trim on the over-sleeves worn by an extra in the square at the end of the film is the same costume worn by an extra in the Pump Room when Anne talks with Mr. Elliot in Persuasion (2007), by Lady Willoughby when she meets Lady Russell in the Pump Room in Persuasion (1995), and by the dance teacher during the fan-language lesson in The Regency House Party (2004).

Masterpiece from Forman, Carriere and maybe Buñuel
11 November 2006 | by (Zaragoza, Spain) – See all my reviews

Masterpiece written by Jean Claude Carriere, who wrote, for example "El discreto encanto de la burguesía" or "El fantasma de la libertad" with Luis Buñuel. He also helped Buñuel writing "Mi ultimo suspiro", Buñuel's autobiography.

This a movie not to explain, just to feel. Another great Forman movie, in my humble opinion better than "Man on the moon" or "Larry Flynt" (excellent movies anyway).

Buñuel wanted to do a movie about Goya. Maybe his friend Carriere is doing a bit like a tribute to him. Buñuel would have enjoyed this incredible movie.

Excellent performances by Javier Bardem, Natalie Portman, Stellan Skarsgard, Randy Quaid and everyone involved.
