"[A] visceral plunge into the life of a famous torero played by real-life bullfighting legend Miguel Mateo, known as Miguelin. Charting his rise and fall with a single-minded focus on the bloody business at hand, the film is at once gritty and operatic, placing the viewer right in the thick of the ring's action, as close to death as possible. ... [T]his is a not just an electrifying drama but also a profound and moving inquiry into a violent world and it's perhaps the greatest bullfighting movie ever made."--Container
