Paco Mora in Salomé


2002 NR

In this visually lush musical interpretation of the biblical story of Salomé, acclaimed Spanish filmmaker Carlos Saura recounts the immortal tale of lust, jealousy and vengeance through the magic of flamenco. Saura unspools the drama with a breathtaking blend of dance, theatre and documentary. Aida Gómez plays the young temptress whose exotic dance for King Herod (Paco Mora) costs John the Baptist (Javier Toca) his head.
