THE TYRANT OF HIM SAY ALL, SAY MORE!

AND STAB WITH THE FUEY OF A

SLAVE'S HAND, THE TYRANT'S INFAMY

WOMAN? OF HER BITE YOU MAY PERISH...

...BUT SULLY NOT YOUR LIFE SPEAKING

ILL OF WOMAN! JOSE MARTI

Here come the cigarette girls!

My name is Jose Lizarrabengoa,

"The Basque" to most

I was born in a village

in Navarre 23years ago

I joined the army...

...before I was 18

My service record is spotless

Get in the shade,

sweetie, or you'll melt!

Cook like you walk

and I'd lick your pan clean

That arse must shit sweets

I could eat you, dress and all

Hey, gorgeous!

They say women and cats

never come when you call,...

...yet come when

you pay them no heed

Hey, darling,...

...I fancy that chain of yours

It's for my ramrod

Where does that hang at night?

Behind the door?

Want to count the moles on my body?

,Mary appeared to the shepherds,...

...the children Melania

and Maximus,...

...and told of plagues, wars

and famine in Europe,...

...and earthquakes the world over

The Virgin said:
...

...Melania, these words

won't always be secret

You can publish them in 1858

Society is on the eve

of its worst calamities

It will bend under a rod of iron,

and drink the wrath of God

This will be its darkest hour,

a crisis for the Church.,

Give me water

,The Antichrist will be

born of a Hebrew nun,...

...a false virgin, in league

with the serpent of old,...

...mistress of impurity,

a bishop's brat...,

Is the Basque a good shot?

Not interested

Sour grapes. You know who said that

Some foxy bitch

Better a whore

than a cigarette girl

Is that you or your mother?

Does soldier boy smoke?

-Ask him

Give him a nice cigar

Here,...

...give him this

See if it lights him up

Slag!

Shag bag!

Stinks of dead fish

Blotchy its, try washing!

You reek of gypsy dick

Call me gypsy and I'll knife you

You've been kissed already,

oh, dear, dear, dear

Gypsy girl

You've been kissed already,

I don't want you now

Want two scars, eh?

Let me go, Carmen

Damn you, bitch.

I'll scar you for life!

Let me go!

Be quiet, the lot of you!

My name is Prosper,

Prospero to Spaniards

I have no specific nationality,

Being half-English, half-French

I am a writer, a traveler,

a humanist, an archaeologist...

...with a penchant for delving into

the mysteries of the human heart

In autumn 1830, I ventured

down the roads of Spain, ...

...in search of facts about the

Nasrid and Umayyad dynasties, ...

...tantamount to researching

two historic Islamic capitals:...

...Cordoba and Granada

Is it much further?

-Nearly there, sir

Chance, ...

...or perhaps my guide and companiors

Familiarity with the land,...

...led us to a shady river bank,...

...delightful in the extreme

A traveler could not wish for...

...more peaceful a spot to rest

Smoke

But the honour of arriving

First was not mine

Sir, shouldn't we go back?

See to the horses

Did we disturb your rest, friend?

Do you smoke?

Do you have a lighter...

...I could borrow?

It's genuine prime Havana

It's an age since I smoked!

My man prudently brought supplies

Do join us in a snack

Do you know the region?

What valley is this?

I don't know

I'd ceased to believe in bandits...

...of whom I'd heard but never met

I'm not what you think, sir

My beliefs forbid crime

Life has made me...

...the opposite of what I wished

Continue, please

Why? To what end?

It's always the others who speak,...

...never the bandits

I'm a writer

I listen to life

If we ever meet again,

which I doubt,...

...I may tell you my story,

but not today

Your servant covets

the price on my head

Vicente Aranda

Vicente Aranda Ezquerra (Spanish: [biˈθente aɾanˈða eθˈkera]; 9 November 1926 – 26 May 2015) was a Spanish film director, screenwriter and producer.Due to his refined and personal style, he was one of the most renowned Spanish filmmakers. He started as a founding member of the Barcelona School of Film and became known for bringing contemporary Spanish novels to life on the big screen. Aranda was also noted for exploring difficult social issues and variations on the theme of desire while using the codes of melodrama. Love as uncontrollable passion, eroticism and cruelty are constant themes in his filmography. The frank examination of sexuality is one of the trademarks of his work, as seen in his most internationally successful film: Amantes (1990) (Lovers). more…
