This is one of the most beautiful movies I have seen. The actors are excellent, transferring their feelings of being lost, of hope and despair. And the movie itself is beautifully done - in the tradition of Amadeus, Ragtime and Valmont. I suggest seeing it on big screen.
It is nice to see Forman return with such a movie. Also, congratulations to the cast:
Javier Bardem (Brother Lorenzo), Natalie Portman (Inés/Alicia), Stellan Skarsgård (Goya).
I especially liked Natalie's performance. It is rare that such a young actress in Hollywood delivers such a performance in such a movie.
