Vengo, by Tony Gatlif (87’)
The rich and passionate sounds of Spanish flamenco music provide the backdrop for this emotional drama of two families at war. Caco is a man whose family has long been at odds with the Caravacas, a prominent family living in the same village. Mario, Caco's brother, murdered one of the Caravacas, and now the family is out for blood, with Mario's son Diego the expected target. Caco has lost a daughter of his own, whom Diego loved, and Caco is determined to spare his nephew the same fate. But guarding the young man is no easy task in the hilly country of southern Spain.
