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.

Stupid and unfortunate exploitation of Lorca's tragedy
This stupid mixture of thriller and biopic is extremely ridiculous, dramatically cloying, from Andy Garcia playing a kind of Super-Lorca, to the costumes or the cheap touristic Spanish setting. The music is horribly cheesy, Franco's fascists appear as the bad guys of a bad thriller (they were actually more rude than that, and more dangerous). And there was nothing about homosexuality, SuperLorca should be a hero for all the audiences and Andy García has a Latin lover image to be protected. Don't play Lorca then! I don't know if it was less the time spent in investigating Lorca's real background during the civil war or the shame of the crew making such a horrible movie, in which I'm sure nobody believed. And what an ending...!
If you are interested in Lorca and know nothing previously about him, stay away from this thing. It deserves truly a 1, because no movie can be worse than this one. I don't know how his biographer (Ian Gibson) took some part, I suppose he regrets doing it, or maybe he needed some money.
