Example text

The serenades themselves are also shown in split screen to emphasise how – in reality – the two main protagonists have now grown much closer. The important point here is that the musical sequences are designed to undermine the individuality of the characters as actants within a defined plot. The viewer is thereby encouraged to project into the film’s portrayal of love in ‘universalist’ terms. The characters, though, are not simply wallpaper on which the musical performances are hung. After this particular scene, Jorge Bueno is no longer as good as he was at the beginning of the film, while Pedro is able to elicit the audience’s sympathy much more effectively.

HART room – producing a rather bathetic effect which ill suits the circumstances – Kovalov’s version intensifies the suspense by cross-cutting to a number of other sequences while the rape is ‘in process’ (in particular, the real bullfight sequence followed by the mock bullfight performed in the ranch-yard). Perhaps just as important, these sequences, particularly those showing the fireworks burning in the model bull’s torso – since we know that María is being raped off-screen – allude suggestively to the pyrotechnics of passion.

Camerawork The camerawork is conventional enough during the film, as one might expect. During the simultaneous serenades the screen is split to show both women in reaction shots to the serenade, and to emphasise the similarity of their respective plights (both of the loves are impossible, and therefore highly romantic, hence the tears). The serenades themselves are also shown in split screen to emphasise how – in reality – the two main protagonists have now grown much closer. The important point here is that the musical sequences are designed to undermine the individuality of the characters as actants within a defined plot.
