The layering of painting, stagecraft, music, dance, and film does justice to the subject.
You don't have to speak the language to get drawn into the captivating performances - or set your toes tapping.
Mr. Saura's museum of dance lacks subtitles or lengthy explanations. This keeps the visuals fluid and intact, but even unambiguous flamenco could use some translation of lyrics.
A viewer may not connect, emotionally, with every number, and may even dislike a few, but that, too, the film suggests, is the nature of flamenco. We bring to it whoever we are in the given moment.
The film creates a visual music as intricate and intense as its musical dramas.
Each performance seems to take place at a specific time of day -- and because this was shot by the great Vittorio Storaro, the cinematography is just as impressive as the performances.
With a camera that shows every movement of the artists, the films transforms itself into a parade of the most pure and authentic Andalusian art. [Full review in Spanish]
The visual aesthetic is powerful, with a visual language that's strong and elegant. [Full review in Spanish]
As simple as it is impeccably executed. [Full review in Spanish]
A film to enjoy by ear, and of course with your eyes. [Full review in Spanish]
[In Flamenco, Flamenco, we see] the terrible beauty of the body's ability to transmit raw emotion through rhythm, the ability of the voice to express joy or grief.
a marvel of color, light, music and dance. Let it envelop you in the dark on the big screen.
Flamenco, Flamenco, similar to the film Flamenco is a series of portraits of performers singing and dancing. What is misleading is to suggest that this is a true historical account of flamenco. While one appreciates the artists involved, it often feels like an terribly long Gypsy Kings concert. In light of the greatest of Pina, Saura ought to have filmed this in 3D and make it spectacular. Instead, it is just entertaining.
