Bull Fight, nº 3



Bull Fight n º3

The opening shows the bull making a mad rush for the picadors, head-on to the audience; the first rush is followed by another. The picadors jump in every direction, with remarkable cleverness and agility. The scene then changes; the bull has received the matador's thrust and stands in the centre of the arena, surrounded by five of the picadors. He backs around, his strength perceptibly ebbing away, then sinks to the ground. The picadors, still unsatisfied, continue to torture the bull, and with a last effort he staggers to his feet. The action in this film is well maintained, and the figures are large and exceptionally sharp.
