3.0 out of 5 stars Fluttering Ashes May 16 2010
For most of his life, Salvador Dali denied that he had ever been lovers with the tragic poet Federico García Lorca -- until the end of his life.

So, writer Philippa Goslett and director Paul Morrison explore what may have been in "Little Ashes," in which two young men become close friends, more-than-friends, only to have their relationship splinter apart. It's a powerful little story with astonishing acting by Robert Pattinson and Javier Beltran, but it tends to meander and shake way too much.

In the Madrid of 1922, a shy and awkward art student named Salvador Dali (Pattinson) is drawn into a circle of vibrant, iconoclastic young artists, including filmmaker Luis Buñuel (Matthew McNulty) and poet Federico García Lorca (Javier Beltran). Lorca in particular is intrigued by Dali, who is just discovering his unique melty surrealist style -- and it's not a platonic crush. And though initially he fights against the attraction, a trip to the seaside reveals Lorca's feelings to Dali.

But as their attraction grows, Buñuel feels shut out and tries to pull Dali out of Lorca's orbit -- and after an unsuccessful attempt to consummate their affair, Dali vanishes to Paris without a word. A possibly insulting movie and many years widen the split between them, until Lorca meets Dali, now world famous and in love with the "witch" Gala (Arly Jover). Dali has changed, and so has Spain -- with terrible results.

I know relatively little of either Dali or Lorca's lives, but it seems that "Little Ashes" is less about what happened than about what MIGHT have happened.

2.0 out of 5 stars Vague and silly Jan. 27 2010
The year is 1922, and young Salvador Dalí arrives at the Students' Residence in Madrid, hoping to become a great surreal artist. He meets poet and writer Federico García Lorca and budding film maker Luis Buñuel and, though shy, joins their group of avant-garde friends. Lorca falls instantly in love with Dalí who returns his affections, to a point.

This low-budget, art-house biopic is poorly written and directed. We never learn anything about the personalities, talents, or inspirations of the three main characters and Dalí changes from morose student to flamboyant exhibitionist without explanation. Javier Beltran stars as García Lorca and is quite charismatic and sympathetic. Twilight's Robert Pattinson is badly miscast as Dalí, however, mumbling in a bad Spanish accent, avoiding eye contact, and looking uncomfortable and often quite silly on the screen.

The script wanders all over the place and becomes dull when Beltran is not on screen. There is no real drama or intensity, in spite of the longing glances and groping. Disappointing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Suzieshare Feb. 20 2010
Littles Ashes, If you love Robert Pattinson (Salvatore Dali) like I do, you should see this movie. If your not afraid to break the image of a sensual vampire, you should see this movie. Javier Beltran (Federico Garcia Lorca)is very seductive. Excellent story of art and poetry. Forbidden love. Very sensual images. Excellent.
To be seen absolutely.

4.0 out of 5 stars Loved it ! Feb. 17 2010
I found this story truly beautiful. I loved Javier Beltran, and I loved Robert Pattinson. The intensity between them is very well displayed, they are both truly skilled actors. It is a sad and beautiful story that has marked me, and I know I'll watch the movie again and again over the years. The filmaking is also great, all in all, a must-see movie for those sensitive to the little details that make a real classic.
