Carmen

(dir.Carlos Saura, 1983, Spain), 102 mins

Carlos Saura uses Flamenco dance as the primary discourse for Bizet’s Carmen. Antonio, choreographer (Saura), facing a midlife crisis, brings in a sultry young dancer to perform the lead. Emotions and jealousies run high, as the lives of the dance company converge into the opera’s story, blurring the lines between fiction and reality. 

MUSICAL

Oscar nomination for Best Foreign Film.
