La novia The Bride

About the film

Based on Bodas de sangre by Federico García Lorca, this film tells the story of a love triangle between two men and a woman. Two lovers are carried away by their passion, defying all moral and social rules and even challenging their own judgement. On the day of her wedding, the bride and her lover escape on horseback to live their dream. Their disobedience will have devastating consequences.

Ortiz renders this passionate love story about a bride so incapable of controlling her desire for her lover that she abandons her groom with such sumptuous cinematic style and a sense of audacity that Lorca himself would most certainly have applauded. It’s no wonder that The Bride has dominated this year’s race to the Goya Awards —Spain’s equivalent to the Oscars— with a total of twelve nominations, including Best Picture.
