Flamenco Photos

Movie Info

This beautifully photographed documentary is Spanish-filmmaker Carlos Saura's tribute to the beauty and diversity of Spain's national dance. Using only the minimalist setting of an abandoned Seville train station and the costumes of more than 300 performers, this is a veritable feast of exciting flamenco dances, songs, and guitar playing. Some of the better known artists include Paco de Lucia, Manolo Sanlucar, and Lole Manuel. The film features little dialogue, relying instead on visual pageantry, music and costumes. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

Critic Reviews for Flamenco

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (6)

This 1995 catalog of performances by various artists may represent the historical development of a rich and enthralling art form, but it's presented in such a clinical way it might as well be a list on a chalkboard.

A superb, impassioned concert film.

An irresistible treat for connoisseurs and the uninitiated alike, pic will be a bracing surprise for anyone who has forgotten how exciting music, dance and voice can be.

Saura's film is both an exciting document of a thriving Spanish art form and a boring documentary.

Top Critic

The dead spots in the film outnumber the highlights, and a sameness sets in too soon and for too long.

The swirling together of music, dance, color and light, along with the feeling that these serious revels are driven by ancient, impenetrable mysteries, cannot help but stir the blood.

Audience Reviews for Flamenco

Maybe if I actually could dance the Flamenco, I would be able to appreciate it more. Dull to a non dancer.
