Movie Reviews

An amazing look inside the world and tradition of Bullfighti
W. Gonzalez | Atlanta, Ga. USA | 03/01/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a fantastic voyage into the world of Bullfighting. You get to live in "El Fandi's" world and see him pursue his quest of completing 100 Corrida's in a single season. You see first hand the love of a family dedicated to helping David attain this dream, and the sacrifice they all make to see it happen.

Bullfighting certainly is not for everyone, but for those who can see the inherent beauty, and bravado this is sure to please. The documentarian also shows the people who protest Bullfighting, and question it's place in todays world. Bullfighting is ceratinly not without critics, but this film is about a mans total focus on attaining a dream, not a debate. To watch him in the ring is magical and majestic, he is trully one of the best Matadors. The score is also grand and the photography brillant. If this were about another topic, besides Bullfighting, this would surely have won and Academy Award.

If this topic interests you at all, buy the DVD, you will be glad you did!

Next best thing to attending one.

"I was very surprised at how beautiful this movie is and how well the matadors career is shown. I think it is a fascinating career choice in such a demanding tradition."

"What a great film ... I've been looking everywhere for a good film on Bullfights but this is amazing! ... The soundtrack is also fantastic and I want to know where you can purchase the CD which is apparently available ... Highly recommended for those who enjoy tradition ... Word to the wise though, young children should not watch this as they may be frightened by the scenes."
Amazing documentary

"A must see for all bullfighting aficionados. Captures perfectly the culture of the sport and gives you great insights into the world of El Fandi. Incredible footage, brilliant colors, and an amazing story which will keep you at the edge of your seat."
