My son watched this with me when he was younger and thought it was stupid. A couple of years later and a couple years older and wiser he watched it again. Realizing that even though this movie is not about any particular person or people. Such events were once common place. When he watched it again he felt the deep despair and utter hopelessness the people of that time must have felt. He understood how impossible a situation they lived under. He realized how imposable it must have been for them to have believed it could ever be different. It brought him to tears and he too was inspired even as his old man had been. This is what makes this movie great. I wish every movie could do that.
It's fun. Peter O'Toole is fabulous as "The Knight of the Rueful Countenance"; Sophia Loren is terrific as Aldonza; and James Coco as Sancho.....PERFECT. So what of the singing? What does it matter???? What any one of them may lack in singing is more than made up for in their performances which are tremendous.
And the story within a story is so interesting as the characters in "real life" are recruited to play parts in the "story". Great fun.
In the end I think this movie is performed beautifully.
