A fascinating work that sublimates the desires of the female head of the household, Bernarda Alba, and her five daughters into a passionate Flamenco!
A village in Andalusia, southern Spain in the early 1930s.
Bernarda Alba, who lost her second husband Antonio to a sudden death, stays with her old mother and five daughters. Inheriting and managing Antonio’s foodstuffs and properties, including his farm, she became an authoritative head of household. Duringthe eight-year mourning for Antonio, Bernarda Alba closely monitors her family so that they cannot continue to interact with the villagers, forcing them to live an extremely restrained life. In this situation, her first daughter, Angustias, begins to hurry up her marriage to her younger fiancé, Pepe, and create subtle tension between the sisters who become fond of Pepe’s appearance.
Bernarda Alba’s seemingly peaceful home.
Within it, Bernarda Alba and her family are jealous and confronted by their own passionate feelings, which eventually lead to ruin.
