Blood Wedding

Bodas de sangre

Directed by Carlos Saura
Spain, 1981
  • Spanish
  • English


Carlos Saura began what would become his trilogy with this depiction of a single dress rehearsal for choreographer Antonio Gades’ adaptation of poet/playwright Federico Garcia Lorca’s tale of passionate revenge.

Our take

Three great Spanish artists together in one delirious film: Carlos Saura adapting a choreography by Antonio Gades, himself adapting Federico García Lorca. Saura, famed for his dance films, is at his best, capturing both the moments before the show begins, and then all the movement in its beauty.
