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.

Slow death
31 July 1999 | by lib-4See all my reviews

Though the costumes are nice, the movie is just too slow and muddled. I never get the feeling of Lorca's greatness from Garcia's acting. James Olmos is adequate, but not much else helps this to be a gripping story. I wanted to know a lot more about why Lorca was chosen to die. I don't think that the writers or directors put this across well.
