It tells about the life, culture, musical and dance language of the Gypsies, expressed through different styles and directions of flamenco, helps the viewer to get to know them better.
Director Natalia Zaikova (also brilliantly playing the main role) highlights a simple, one might even say transparent history of flamenco, its chemistry, basis, DNA from a complex array of heritage.
These plexuses of sounds, rhythms, feelings that flow through your veins contain all the memory, all the information transmitted from the most ancient ancestors who lived thousands of years ago. The girl from the tobacco factory, the heiress of rituals, dance, flamenco art, it's all her, it's all Carmen.
What's so special about her? What's so special about you?
In the unattainability and simultaneous worthlessness of the ideal, the formation of a personality and at the same time the loss of something very important in your soul, two threads twisted into a spiral are a kind of blueprint of life, which contains data on the structure of the skeleton, tissues, eye color and hair... but is it just that?
Carmen is "thousands or more faces." Everyone who has read or seen a novel in the theater or cinema carries his own unique Carmen.
It is impossible to save and transfer all the information to the next generation without changes
DNA is not a well-established mechanism, it is a dynamically changing organism that stores a lot of undisclosed areas and secrets, like Carmen, like flamenco itself.
