Quotes

[first lines]
Lorca: When the pier forms collapsed under crumpling sound of daisies, I realized that they had murdered me. They combed the cafes, the graveyards, the churches; they pried open coffins and ransacked chests and cabinets. They smashed 3 skulls to rip out their gold teeth, but they couldn't find me. They couldn't find me. No, they couldn't find me.

compelling historical drama
19 October 2016 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Ricardo Fernandez (Esai Morales) and his family escaped the Spanish Civil War to Pueto Rico 18 years ago. He wants to write about his childhood hero political writer Federico Garcia Lorca (Andy Garcia). He goes back to Spain to investigate Lorca's disappearance despite his father's concerns. As a child in Granada, Ricardo brought his family to Lorca's play. It is the start of the Spanish Civil War and Lorca is seen as a leftist agitator. Young Ricardo is taken with the charismatic Lorca.

This is an interesting historical drama. There is a bit of melodrama. The acting is good for the most part. It may be more compelling to concentrate more on Lorca and his life instead of the back and forth between the two time lines. It may also have more tension if the movie doesn't basically give away Lorca's end right from the start. I don't know anything about the real life of Lorca and it's nice to get a version of it here. The location shoots don't hurt either.
