Il Momento della Verita (The Moment of Truth) Reviews

ends up feeling distracted, constantly torn away from developing an interesting protagonist in favor of lingering on the behind-the-scenes machinations of the business of bullfighting and bullfighting itself

TV Guide's Movie Guide

The Moment of Truth tells the story of a farm boy, Mateo, who heads for the bullrings of Barcelona and quickly becomes a top-rated toreador and press darling. His downfall is just as abrupt, however.

There's one thing I can say about every bullfighting movie I've seen: I'm always rooting for the bull.

Francesco Rosi's 1965 feature is widely (and plausibly) considered the best movie about bullfighting, in part because of its irony and finesse in capturing how the sport springs from and plays against the social reality of Spain.

It's a colourful, cruel world of senseless exploitation (of animals and humans alike) and tyrannical traditions, rendered with vivid brilliance by this uncommonly unsentimental director.

This fable of the disposable performer rising above his class transcends ordinary fiction to be an expressive visual record of the art of bullfighting: primal, brutal, repellent and magnetic in equal measure. [Blu-ray]

Never have I got such a message of the cruelty of the sport as is conveyed in this film, which owes much of its excitement to superb color photography.
