Movie Info

Carlos Saura, one of the finest and most distinctive filmmakers in the Spanish cinema, wrote and directed this biographical epic concerning one of Spain's greatest artists, the painter Francisco de Goya y Lucientes. On his deathbed, Goya (Francisco Rabal), attended by his mistress, Leocadia (Eulalia Ramon) and their daughter, Rosario (Dafne Fernandez), is plagued by hallucinations and frequent visions of the beautiful Cayetana (Maribel Verdu) as his mind reels through the events of his life.

The effort conveys the clumsy earnestness of an elaborately produced high school pageant.

Lushly photographed and grandly conceived, Carlos Saura's Goya in Bordeaux never comes alive.

Magnificent biopic of painter, gripping and inventive

January 24, 2005
Classic Film and Television

Offers an unflinching and original look at the Spanish painter who spent his last years living in exile in France.

When the film, as it frequently does, sticks to traditional dialog sans music, it quickly grinds to a halt.

Love it or hate it, you can't forget Saura's style.

A visually pleasing but unmoving biopic of the 18th-century Spanish painter Francisco Goya.

Despite good intentions, Goya in Bordeaux ends up more frustrating than entertaining.

Visually extravagant and aurally luxuriant, intriguingly episodic and thematically enigmatic, both sumptuous and visionary.

Exquisite technique and deep passion come together so forcefully, so beautifully, as in the work of Spanish director Carlos Saura.
