Erste Reaktionen / first reactions - Sinopsis Espanol - Vita Espanol





I think my biggest inspiration to work for this film is when I saw "LA SINGLA" in Hamburg-Musichall 1971 . SHE WAS SO FURIOSOFANTASTICO!!! I will never forget! All spectators were standing on their chairs!!! (In Hamburg, a "cool" town this never happens, i have never seen again! everybody was standing on their chairs and cheering frantically! it was a different universe in hamburg that evening!)





wonderful Flamenco artists but not in this film, saludos con sol!
