Bull Fight, nº 2



Bull Fight n º2

Taken at the same place, on the same day, and shows a portion of a different fight. The scene opens with the matador, sword in hand, and the bull in the right foreground. The bull at first slowly approaches the matador; this is suddenly changed into a fierce charge. The bull is again the aggressor, with the matador facing him but slowly retreating; suddenly the matador leaps forward and thrusts his sword between the shoulder blades of the bull, inflicting the death-wound. The action is maintained throughout the film, the figures life size and very sharp.
