This film is the third in Carlos Saura's dance trilogy, following Blood Wedding and Carmen. Set in a gypsy shantytown, the drama is a story of a widow's (Cristina Hoyos) obsession with her deceased husband (Juan Antonio Jimenez). Antonio Gades plays the man who has loved her since childhood, and Laura del Sol is featured as the decesased man's secret girlfriend. Neither the choreography nor the music in Love, the Magicians matches the high standards set by Carmen. Nonetheless, those who have become addicts of Saura's distinctive blend of Spanish music, singing, and dance won't want to miss his interpretation of the gypsy view of love.
