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.

[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 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.

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.

For Flamenco, Flamenco he kicks up the style and visual luster to deliver a film that is so vivid that it stands out in bold relief in ways digital 3D can never compete.
