  • Director: Carlos Saura
  • Genre:Historical Drama
  • Year of production:1999

Francisco de Goya, at 82 and exiled in Bordeaux with the last of his lovers, Leocadia Zorrilla de Weiss, begins to reconstruct for his daughter Rosario the events that marked his life. A life that was affected by political unrest, poisoned passions and the ecstasy of fame. He will recall the young ambitious Goya in his struggle to climb the slippery steps of Carlos IV's court, where he experienced recognition and fortune, palace intrigues and games of seduction and lies. He will also remember his only true love, the Duchess of Alba, a woman who reshaped his life and the history of his day, although their relationship was frustrated by poisonous conspiracies.
