||Synopsis: "A Matador's Mistress" is a tragically eloquent dance of the cold brutality of uncommitted love and the high stakes of the Bullfight. Immerse yourself in the culture of Spain surrounding the age old traditions of the Matador. While the bullfight is controversial by today's standards, the ancient art-form is depicted with unflinching realism. The story is of man against beast, the bullfighter's zen, if you will; his nightly dance with death. A world-class lover enters his world; their code is their truth. Life being lived, edgy, relentlessly flirting with disaster, untamed, beautiful. Written by Amanda Abernathy

Since, after all, a movie is meant to be seen by an audience, I don't
get what the director Meyjes expected from his work "Manolete".
Indeed, the "aficionados" (i.e. corrida-lovers) can only feel outraged
by the huge amount of falsities and distortions, concerned with both
life and personality of the actual Manolete, that one finds in the
movie. On the other hand, the large majority of people, being
corrida-haters, will be uninterested, if not deeply bored, by a
straightforward love story of a torero and his mistress, worth of a
cheap XIXth century novel. (The actual love story of Manolete and Lupe
Sino was much more psychologically intriguing than the stuff shown in
Speaking of the movie, the photography is fine, and the costumes are
beautiful. The jobs of Brody as the torero and Penelope Cruz as Lupe
Sino are acceptable. There is some very short but interesting 1940s
footage of the true Manolete fighting in the plaza de toros. However,
the film badly fails in recreating the atmosphere of Spain in the years
after the civil war.
Indeed, the inaccuracies of the movie are really dismaying. Lupe Sino
is surprised seeing that a torero wears pink socks. C'mon! It's like
showing a young American woman not knowing that football players wear
helmets! Manolete enters a crowded hall, participates to parties, and
everybody ignores him. C'mon! It's like seeing Michael Jordan unnoticed
at a meeting of basketball fans! Manolete's popularity was literally
unbelievable all over the world, among common people, as well as among
big time politicians and major cinema stars, that fought to have him at
their social events. A couple of instances. When Manolete died, Winston
Churchill sent a personal message of condolence to his mother. The
Mexican government was forced to cut some scheduled corridas, since
people didn't buy food to save money for the tickets of Manolete's
bullfights (source: "Time Magazine" year 1946).
The movie also contains a number of so obvious clichés, like the
torero's greedy relatives, or the fatuous and hypocritical catholic
priests, or the incompetent doctors (this latter a really dirty
slander!), etc. Of course, to know something of the actual Manolete,
you have to neglect the character shown in the movie, and rather read
some of the dozens of books dedicated to him, even in very recent
years. Indeed, I bet that in this very moment someone is writing a book
on the legendary torero.
The portrait made of Lupe Sino is liable of aggravated defamation.
Forget that Lupe was much younger and more beautiful than Cruz, and
that, obviously, she was an aficionada, contrary to the character of
the movie. Forget that Lupe was a smiling, sweet-tempered, cheerful
girl, deeply in love with her man, contrary to the perpetual ferocious
grudge against everybody and everything shown by Cruz's "Lupe". What is
unacceptable is that the film- maker turns her into an unfaithful,
spiteful, foul-mouthed bum.
As far as I know, the movie "Manolete" was badly unsuccessful, as
predictable. I didn't like it.
