seductive
25 June 2016 | by See all my reviews

it is more than a Spanish version of Shakespeare in love. it is more than portrait of a great play writer. or a homage. it is an admirable work about the spirit of a period, the life of a hero in different sense, a great expression of force for the Spanish cinematography. adventure, love stories, conflict with law, the strong taste of life, the light behind the shadows and a great cast. Lope is that kind of film who use the costumes, landscapes, small personal stories , fragments of biography for create a total show, impressive not only for the force of image , but for its extraordinary message. that does its magical seduction. to propose a credible story about a literary myth. and this Lope de Vega who has for his image the work as seed.
