"A Matador's Mistress" is a tragically eloquent dance of the cold brutality of uncommitted love and the high stakes of the Bullfight. Immerse yourself in the culture of Spain surrounding the age old traditions of the Matador. While the bullfight is controversial by today's standards, the ancient art-form is depicted with unflinching realism. The story is of man against beast, the bullfighter's zen, if you will; his nightly dance with death. A world-class lover enters his world; their code is their truth. Life being lived, edgy, relentlessly flirting with disaster, untamed, beautiful.Written by

The young challenger matador's hat is missing as the camera moves from long shot to the close-up. He was in mid swing of his cape with nowhere he could have placed the cap, no one near enough to hand it to, and it is not on the ground. See more »
... and nothing more. sure, it is a nice film. and a not bad homage to a great matador. but the coherence of story is absent. the roots of story - reduced at sketches. the love story, the dramatic love story, only as occasion for remind slices from soap opera. and the only problem is, in fact, the cast. Adrien Brody deserves a better script. Penelope Lopez has the science to give more than a series character. something fundamental is wrong in this case. and this is all.
