Editorial Reviews

Based on the play by Federico Garci?a Lorca, THE HOUSE OF BERNARDA ALBA is the story of a cold-blooded provincial widow and her five adult daughters. Bernarda (Irene Gutie?rrez Caba) rules her wealthy household with an iron fist, forbidding her daughters to socialize with, let alone marry, the local people she considers their social inferieors. After the death of their father, Bernarda locks her daughters in the house for an eight-year mourning period, acquiescing only to the courtship of her eldest, Angustias (Enriqueta Caballeira), by Pepe el Romano, a mysterious nobleman who arrives on horseback each evening. Because Pepe is the only eligible bachelor in town, the younger sisters fall in love with him as well. Hardest hit is Adela (Ana Bele?n), the beauty of the family, whose illicit romance with Pepe has tragic conseqeunces for the entire family. Beautifully shot and acted, the film conveys both the claustrophobia and beauty of a sequestered, all-female hosuehold.

Format: DVD
This film IS beautifully filmed and acted. But the soundtrack is not synchronized with the actor's dialogue and it is frustrating to watch. Also, the English subtitles are messed up. Complete phrases and sentences are missing. If one is not fluent in Spanish, the English subtitles are of no use.

I was disappointed to have purchased an inferior product.

The Film is great but what a disaster, watching this DVD!
I usually do not complain but this time I will send a letter to all involved with the making or distributing this DVD. The transfer quality is inferior to the print I saw in 1990. The subtitles are useless and they are only half sentences at times on the screen and you are wondering what you are reading. The soundtrack is off and it is irritating. If you are a fan of the author or the movie, get the DVD, but you must understand a little Spanish.

This video helped some of my students to better understand Lorca's work. However, depending on your community, be sure to preview it. Take note on when to pause/stop/jump as some scenes may upset some parents.

Fabulous movie. I use it in my Spanish lit class in conjunction with the original text by Garcia Lorca. The students love it and it's wonderful for discussion. Great video!
