Critic Reviews for Flamenco, Flamenco
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.
Audience Reviews for Flamenco, Flamenco
With all due respect. But so little have I learned about Flamenco after 101 minutes of music + dance.
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.
