(Director: Bigas Luna)
½ June 30, 2009
This historical epic, a rarity for quirky Catalonian director Bigas Luna is quite an achievement. One which has been undeservedly maligned by many. Aitana Sanchez Gijon has been praised for her performance as the Duchess of Alba, having won the Best Actress award at the 1999 San Sebastian Film Festival. The rest of the stellar cast: Penelope Cruz, Jordi Moya', and Jorge Perugorria (as Goya) are at least adequate, and the art direction, and look of the movie are both breathtaking.

One of Penelope's best acting ventures. She looked lovely in her role as a mother, a daughter, a friend. The spanish culture was depicted with such vibrant colors and beautiful background music. The story itself was worth the time and money.

Intrigues, love and sex with the Duchess, jealousy from the queen, and finally the Duchess killed, but who killed her? Bigas Luna was able to ensemble a plot, which starts with few dialogs, good photographs, Aitana Sanchez-Gijon (The Duchess) and Penelope Cruz showing something of their charms, one Jorge Perugorri­a (Goya painter) talking or whispering, probably making an effort to avoid his Cuban accent, Jordi Molla as a lover and powerful minister, and Stefania Sandrelli, no matter how old she is, as a queen, and also a lover. The excitement really starts after mid film, and more than a drama it becomes a good thriller.
