L’ombre de Goya par Jean-Claude Carrière

José Luis López-Linares, Spain, France, Portugal, 2022o


It is with great emotion that we rediscover the magical langage of the late screenwriter Jean-Claude Carrière, as he researches the painter Goya. An incredible trip through culture, emotion, cinema, painting and Spain.

A journey with Jean-Claude Carrière - writer, screenwriter and friend of Luis Buñuel - through the magical world of the painter Francisco de Goya (1746 - 1828). Carrière goes to Aragon, where both Goya and Buñuel come from, and from inspiring pictorial analyses reveals both the intellectual world at the turn of the 19th century and the socio-political background of the painter. And he shows how Goya has influenced artists of all disciplines, including filmmakers, to this day - among other things, he establishes him as a great forerunner of Surrealism. Perhaps there is one (singing) interview too many at times, but whenever the paintings or Goya's lesser-known but equally impressive etchings come into view, enjoyment is guaranteed.
