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.
