Carmen is the middle part of Carlos Saura’s trilogy, the other parts being Blood Wedding (1981) and A Love Bewitched (1986). This film, whose creative potential is largely due to dancer/choreographer Antonio Gades, is based on both the novel by Prosper Mérimée and the opera by Georges Bizet about a passionate gypsy woman Carmen, whose strong emotions are struggling with an even stronger will to freedom, even if the price to pay were death.
