Excerpt from Review
We eagerly anticipated the arrival of Rob, who makes a dramatic entrance dressed flamboyantly frilly and sporting the oddest haircut possibly ever seen on film. However after about 10 minutes the story and acting took over and we were enthralled by the most wonderful cinematography and musical score. Spain never looked more stunning and each location was filmed to its advantage, particularly the scene where Lorca and Dalí steal some bicycles and visit the beach. The moonlit sea was breathtaking and was our favourite scene - I thought they looked like underwater angels and their first kiss was electrifying.
Dalí's eccentricities and breakdowns were perfectly portrayed by Rob and in this film we saw a fine actor and not a pretty boy with plucked eyebrows. He showed great comedic ability through facial expression and body language (including a Charlie Chaplin-style dance). Praise should also be heaped on Javier Beltrán as the insecure but extremely talented poet, Federico Garcia Lorca, who forms an unlikely intimate relationship with Dalí. The moments of closeness they shared were tender and believable.
