Passionate and mortal romance in Barcelona



Outstanding adaptation of Alfredo Maña´s play, entitled "La historia de los Tarantos", that in a sort of time and space transposition of Shakespeare's classic "Romeo and Juliet", describes the unlucky love between a couple of young gypsies, pertaining to two different families, deep-rooted opposing and established in the now missing district of Somorrostro, in Barcelona.

Rovira Beleta´s cinema, seriously committed with Catalonia social reality reached and international repercussion with this fable of passion and resentment, embellished with the flamenco superb scenes by Carmen Amaya (in her las film appearance) or a suggestive, night life and irrigated dance by Antonio Gades through the beautiful Ramblas.

Wonderful in its chromatic esthetic and its interpretations, the movie brings a real vision, nearly to the documental pictures, about methods and traditions of this excluded ethnic collective, without falling in the trite and easy lucrative Spanish folklore.
