Saura's first attempt at a musical yielded succesful results. The movie's main theme is Antonio Gades' mythical baile on Federico García Lorca's "Bodas de sangre" and it's latest example. It was the first collaboration between two of the great names in Spanish culture, Saura and Gasdes, and it was so succesful that it was the first of a series of collaborations.
There is a wedding celebration in an Andaluz town. The bride is still in love with her old boy-friend, Leonarde. Once the wedding has been consuamted she passionately gives herself and elopes with him. The abandoned groom chases after them and, when he finds them, he challenges Leonardo to a duel with knives in which they both wind up dying. Lorca's tragic poetry, life's tragic feeling, death and the violence that followes around the men all their lives is reflected in the omen and anguish of the mother, who has lost her husband for a crime and one of her sons for another.
