    • Synopsis
    • The documentary is a musical film about Enrique Morente and has just been finished shooting a few days before the death of the famous flamenco-singer. The movie shows his last years in which he concentrated on songs about poems written by Pablo Picasso.
      Throughout the film Enrique Morente speaks about his life, flamenco, his family and the history of his friendship with Eugene Arias, a longtime friend of Picasso.
      Morente plays in the film traditional flamenco songs, mixed with mergers and other music. Besides he sings for the first and last time with his family in the Arab ruins of Granada. We see his daughters Estrella and Solea who are not just extraordinarily beautiful, but have notable careers themselves as flamenco singers.
      There are unique visual documents including the last song of his life, "Fallen Angel", that Morente played together with the famous jazz pianist Federico Lechner.
      Inevitably this film will become a lasting tribute to Morente and his unique place in the flamenco firmament.
