Lushly photographed and grandly conceived, Carlos Saura's Goya in Bordeaux never comes alive.

The effort conveys the clumsy earnestness of an elaborately produced high school pageant.

Audience Reviews for Goya in Bordeaux

The use of incorporating actual paintings of Goya into the film help tell a rich story of a artist who lead a very interesting life of love and also displaying his biggest virtue which lead him into a lot of trouble in his work and life, the truth.

Felt like one of those movies you watch in high school to 'learn something.' Wasn't terrible but mostly forgettable.
