"Goya in Bordeaux"
Directed by Carlos Saura
Realizing one of his dream
projects, director Carlos Saura (Carmen, Blood Wedding)
salutes the brilliant painter Francisco de Goya with this feature that
visually reflects the artist's own style. Francisco Rabal plays Goya, who,
on his deathbed, looks back upon his life and shares his memories with his
daughter. "Rarely do the artistic mix of exquisite technique and deep
passion come together so forcefully, so beautifully..." (Michael
Thomson, BBC Online). Appropriately enough, the film won four of
Spain's Goya Awards, including Best Actor (Rabal) and Best Cinematography
(Vittorio Storaro). Spanish with English subtitles.
