4.0 out of 5 stars Captivating movie - one that sticks with you November 30, 2009
Format:DVD
My girlfriends and I drove over four hours away to see this movie in San Francisco when it played in the theatres. We weren't expecting much simply because this was a low-budget independent movie not getting much attention/buzz. So, how great to find a gem of a story and captivating acting by the two leads.

The movie is beautifully shot, the colors are magnificent and the story is one you are compelled to hear with an ending scene that will break your heart.

The acting of Pattinson at times can seem awkward, as he has much growing as an actor to do, but he delivers an appropriately weird and uncomfortable performance as Dali. His performance, unlike those of just plain old bad actors, is anything but boring, and one can only wonder what Pattinson may be capable of with more experience.

And Beltrain as Lorca is hard to take your eyes off of. He has an ease and sincerity to his delivery that never falters, and you'll wish he'd never stop talking let alone leave the screen!

This movie is worth watching. You'll be thinking about it long after the credits have stopped rolling.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT MOVIE!!!!!! May 14, 2009
I've noticed most reviews of this movie are negative, both the writing and the actors were not very good. I thought this movie was AMAZING! Both funny and sad it took you on a rollercoaster ride of emotions. Every actor did a fantastic job and I just wanted to put something out there that is POSITIVE for this movie. I look forward to owning it when it comes out on DVD

3.0 out of 5 stars Meandering story, powerful cast July 19, 2009
For most of his life, Salvador Dali denied that he had ever been lovers with the tragic poet Federico García Lorca -- until the end of his life.

So, writer Philippa Goslett and director Paul Morrison explore what may have been in "Little Ashes," in which two young men become close friends, more-than-friends, only to have their relationship splinter apart. It's a powerful little story with astonishing acting by Robert Pattinson and Javier Beltran, but it tends to meander and shake way too much.

In the Madrid of 1922, a shy and awkward art student named Salvador Dali (Pattinson) is drawn into a circle of vibrant, iconoclastic young artists, including filmmaker Luis Buñuel (Matthew McNulty) and poet Federico García Lorca (Javier Beltran). Lorca in particular is intrigued by Dali, who is just discovering his unique melty surrealist style -- and it's not a platonic crush. And though initially he fights against the attraction, a trip to the seaside reveals Lorca's feelings to Dali.

But as their attraction grows, Buñuel feels shut out and tries to pull Dali out of Lorca's orbit -- and after an unsuccessful attempt to consummate their affair, Dali vanishes to Paris without a word. A possibly insulting movie and many years widen the split between them, until Lorca meets Dali, now world famous and in love with the "witch" Gala (Arly Jover). Dali has changed, and so has Spain -- with terrible results.

I know relatively little of either Dali or Lorca's lives, but it seems that "Little Ashes" is less about what happened than about what MIGHT have happened.

5.0 out of 5 stars Little Ashes March 14, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A friend recommended this movie to me, and it didn't sound like my cup of tea. However I ordered it anyway and I loved it. It's the story of three friends filmmaker Luis Bunel, poet Frederico Garcia Lorca, and painter Salvador Dali when they were students at Art school in Spain. However the focus of the film is the relationship between Lorca and Dali. It's very moving and heart-wrenching. The characters are beautifully played by Javier Beltran and Robert Pattinson. Both actors are fantastic. I was surprized by the chemistry between these two actors. They played off each other very well. Beltran illustrated Lorca's passion for Dali and Pattinson portrayed the conflicted & eccentric Dali to perfection. It's about love, loss, fear,regret, love of country & family, prejudice and violence. I decided to look up the work of these artists b/c of the film. I saw some films of Dali. He really was eccentric and Robert nailed that. I was crying at the end because it was very moving and sad. I would have liked more background information on all three major characters. They could have hired a dialect coach to make the English of the two British actors sound more like that of the Spanish actor. Other than that I highly recommend the film.

As you probably already know: the film has been released on DVD in Europe [region 2]. Amazon UK sells it, so if you own a region-free player or pc/laptop [AnyDVD from Slysoft.com makes the latter region-free safely] you can at least see it. Don't let the British Robin Pattinson haters frighten... Read more
