5.0 out of 5 stars Little Ashes, March 14, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Little Ashes (DVD)
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.
