Based on Georges Bizet’s opera of Prosper Mérimée’s story, Carmen follows Antonio, a choregrapher (Antonio Gades) looking for someone to play the lead in his new dance work. Antonio spots a young dancer named Carmen (Laura del Sol) whose skills are unrefined but whose wildcard spirit is perfect for the operatic gypsy heroine who inspires lust and jealousy in a soldier. The lines between passionate illusion and real life become intricately entwined as the off-stage affair and the choreographed drama become inseparable. In this installment of his filmic odyssey through the world of Latin dance (including Blood Wedding and Love the Magician), Spanish director Carlos Saura collaborates once again with celebrated dancer Antonio Gades to reinterpret this story of love and betrayal through passionate physical performances.
