Goya by Carlos Saura( Visual )
10 editions published between 1999 and 2013 in Spanish and held by 566 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In GOYA IN BORDEAUX Carlos Saura tells the life story of the 18th Century Spanish painter Francisco de Goya. Actually, working with cinematographer Vittorio Storaro, he attempts to "paint" the story. Elaborately staged and beautifully photographed recreations of Goya's canvases come to life as Goya (Francisco Rabal), lying on his death bed, tells his daughter Rosario (Daphne Fernández) the story of his life. After a mysterious illness left him deaf, he changed from a craven, though immensely talented court painter of Spanish royalty, to a passionate painter focusing on the plight of Spain's poor during Napoleon's invasion. After the restoration of the monarchy, he went into exile in France. But he was still haunted by his love affair with the beautiful Duchess of Alba (Maribel Verdu), who the film portrays in flashbacks with the young Goya (played by José Coronado.) Their scenes together are bathed in the soft glow of candlelight, giving the feeling of a cherished erotic memory. These sequences are a direct contrast to the figures of death from his later paintings--some quite ghoulish--who leap from their canvases near the end of the film to almost literally scare the old man to death
