Childhood Fever
30 July 2004 | by harp2wingSee all my reviews

For a little girl in the Amazon River Basin, Marisol was the height of cool.

The movie took me a way to a place where dance and song were everyday matters, and fostered a lifelong love of the passionate music of Flamenco. The fiery music and dance struck a chord that still resonates even now, many years later. The rhythm of Marisol's flashing feet and fingers, the tale as it unfolded, led me to love the little girl who starred in this film. To this day I think about Marisol. To this day I associate flamenco with her, and have her to thank for the continuing love I have for it. And, when Paco Pena's MISA FLAMENCA came to DC, I went to see it, falling in love with flamenco all over again.
