Returning to the Prosper Mérimée novella rather than the Bizet opera for inspiration, this exotic Spanish retelling of the classic tale offers a smoldering account of Carmen (Paz Vega), the wanton Gypsy woman who seduces a soldier (Leonardo Sbaraglia) so deeply he jettisons his scruples and commits cold-blooded murder. Carmen breaks from him, only to find his killing instincts hotly intact. Antonio Dechent, Joan Crosas co-star. 119 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English (dubbed) Dolby Digital stereo. Dubbed in English.
