Francisco Goya (Stellan Skarsgård) works on a series of paintings, one of which is of Father Lorenzo (Javier Bardem), who is captivated by his painting of Ines Bilbatua (Natalie Portman). When Ines is enquired by the Church about her religious activities and beliefs, her father Thomas contacts Goya with the hope that his connection with Lorenzo will ensure the release of his daughter. What follo... read more

Goya's ghosts is a film that i found really bizarre because we see lots of medieval-like sceneries that is set in the 15th or 16th century. It is a film with a lot of bizarre yet dramatic consequences. I don't know how to fully explain what this film was like to watch. All I can say is that it was a very emotional and depressing story, a story with a little taste of Amadeus to it and it has very g... read more

Though it certainly looks like your run of the mill period piece, Milos Forman's Goya's Ghosts is a strange beast indeed. Its successes lie in some fine performances by Stellan Skarsgard and Javier Bardem but the story meanders through vaguely defined periods of Spanish history. It's often disarmingly funny - carrying a vibe that doesn't fit the costumes and high drama of the depicted period and... read more

"7. Goya's Ghost Another period piece that stresses the costumes and funny talk. The only difference here is that they threw in some bondage and a quality nude scene (combined!). If we learned anything here it's that side-boob beats cleavage. Count on it. "

“Though it certainly looks like your run of the mill period piece, Milos Forman's Goya's Ghosts is a strange beast indeed. Its successes lie in some fine performances by Stellan Skarsgard and Javier Bardem but the story meanders through vaguely defined periods of Spanish history. It's often disarmingly funny - carrying a vibe that doesn't fit the costumes and high drama of the depicted period and Natalie Portman borders on brutal at times. Its a movie that never really finds its way and never really seems to have anything particularly important or interesting to say. It is gorgeous to look at and entertaining in a vaudevillian kind of way but never reaches the peaks of Forman's finest work.” read more

"Lorenzo Hate me because I'm a hypocritical priest who uses religion to justify bringing back the torture of the early days of the Spanish Inquisition. Hate me because I use these practices to imprison and rape a girl for the rest of her sane life. Hate me because I do my best to get rid of the child I had with her, and then turn on everything I believe wh"

“Goya's ghosts is a film that i found really bizarre because we see lots of medieval-like sceneries that is set in the 15th or 16th century. It is a film with a lot of bizarre yet dramatic consequences. I don't know how to fully explain what this film was like to watch. All I can say is that it was a very emotional and depressing story, a story with a little taste of Amadeus to it and it has very good characters. The best keyword I could describe Goya's Ghosts is weird. It is a very indescribable film to me. Javier Bardem was good as Lorenzo because he showed that lovable and weirdness to the character but I somehow feel he was quite villainous because I have a sneaky feeling that he raped Inés while she was in prison. He had that slightly scary look like he was in No Country For Old Men.<” read more
