Blood Wedding Photos

Movie Info

A Spanish dance troupe gathers in a threadbare studio to perform a dress rehearsal for a flamenco interpretation of Federico Garcia Lorca's play "Blood Wedding." Choreographer and lead dancer Leonardo (Antonio Gades) is interviewed as the rest of the troupe makes final back-stage preparations. Without dialogue and through their movements alone, the dancers tell the tragic tale of two doomed lovers and a bridegroom who meet their fates in a violent knife fight.

Audience Reviews for Blood Wedding

  • Sep 11, 2012
    On the one hand, I am fond of the bare bones aesthetic on display in "Blood Wedding," featuring a dress rehearsal of a flamenco dance in a dance studio. Not only that but even as a newcomer to this artform, I was definitely impressed with the skills of the dancers and power of the drama. On the other hand, in perhaps wanting to make sure the audience recognizes the amount of hard work that goes into this dance, including the warmup, the movie goes overboard with an obsessive's level of minutia that begins with the dancers and musicians arriving before they get dressed and apply their makeup. In the process, we learn details like how security conscious they are and how they decorate their mirrors, with a particular focus on their shoes. Admittedly, there is a nice bit of foreshadowing concerning the prop knives. And one part I also found interesting is the time we spend inside choreographer Antonio Gades' head in order to learn his story. Now, if only the same thing had been done for some of the other artists.

    Flamenco as an inner Phoenix of passion and vengeance. 93/100 Note: Perhaps I'd give this a few more points, but it has a couple of serious sound editing deficiencies and the most preposterously visible boom mic ever.
