Profile of 24-year-old David Fandila, one of Spain's most popular matadors, as he pursues his goal of performing in 100 bullfights in a single season, cheered on by fans of the controversial spectacle, but hounded as well by protesters who regard it as primitive and brutal. Filmmakers Stephen Higgins and Nina Gilden Seavey's documentary masterfully evokes the beauty of the Spanish countryside and the athleticism of its manifestly devout subject, but how his profession can be compatible with the Christian obligation to preserve human life and avoid unnecessary suffering in animals remains unclear. Bloody violence against animals; fleeting, mostly obscured frontal male nudity; wounds; and a graphic medical procedure. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is L—limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling. Not rated by the Motion Picture Association of America.
