Product Details


Product Description

The Moment of Truth, from director Francesco Rosi (Salvatore Giuliano) is 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. Like all of the great Italian truth seeker’s films, this is a not just an electrifying drama but also a profound and moving inquiry into a violent world—and perhaps the greatest bullfighting movie ever made.

SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES • New high-definition digital restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray edition • Interview with director Francesco Rosi from 2004 • New and improved English subtitle translation • PLUS: A booklet featuring an essay by critic Peter Matthews

4.0 out of 5 stars The truth about corrida April 11 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This film offers a realistic, view of a world behind the corrida scene. No romance, no passion, not really so much pasodoble... The images are not for the faint of hearth, and I am sure the movie was not endorsed by PETA. I give it only 4 stars because it somehow misses the Spanish spirit. Otherwise, I recommend it to anyone who is interesting in learning more about Spain and Corridas.
