Storyline

Filigranas and Aceituno are two bullfighters hired for an amateur bullfight in a little town of Castile. Filigranas is a young man with enthusiasm and a huge desire to succeed; Aceituno, oldest, is disenchanted with the fiesta since he is afraid of bulls. Walking through the village, they meet Fina, an attractive young woman, and Filigranas promises that he will dedicate her a bull if she attends the bullfight. Written by jsanchez

An unknown film that must be rediscovered
10 April 2003 | by See all my reviews

This is not the typical enchanted look to bullfights, which is one of the most distinctive identification signs for the Spanish culture. This film provides a more darker and insightful look to the fiesta and demolishes almost all the stereotypes surrounding it.

Here the main characters (the two "toreros") are presented with their illusions and respect towards bullfights, but also with fear, making them humans and not simply bravura heroes.

In the same way, the people who attend the spectacle (represented by that pintoresque villagers in an incredibly naturalistic way) are not presented just as simple spectators, but as a fierce audience willing to enjoy the fiesta even if there's blood in the "ruedo".

So, bullfighting is not only shown as a form of macho bravery, art or vane entertainment, but also in a more realistic way. This surprises us today bearing in mind the time when the film was shown, in which all Spanish signs of identity had to be glorified in order to please the Dictatorship.

"Los clarines del miedo" should be rediscovered and praised as one of the most significant Spanish films concerning its traditions.
