Wonderful movie - sounds, sights, drama.
I loved this movie, and was sad when the 86 minutes were up.
This is a spectacular blend of flamenco dance, theatre, cinema and documentary that makes you want to buy a copy of anything that displays the prowess of Aida Gomez as a consummate dancer and actress.
The biblical story of Salome, John the Baptist and Herod's jealousy is well portrayed under the direction of Carlos Saura.
The musical accompaniment is well controlled but made me ache for more.
Visually splendid, as I love flamenco dancing and music. Emotionally exhausting as the drama unfolds.
Now all I need now is for the DVD to become available in this part of the planet
