  • Director Paul Morrison ("Wondrous Oblivion") nicely re-creates the period, but puts too much weight on the sexual relationship as determining the men's artistic courses. show more

  • If you'd like to know about the famously eccentric psyche of surrealist artist Salvador Dali, whom Pattinson plays, you're better off consulting written biographies. Little Ashes does nothing to illuminate the iconic Spanish artist. show more

  • The Spanish actress Marina Gatell is exotic and engaging as a young writer drawn to Lorca and puzzled why he is not drawn to her in return. show more

    I thoroughly enjoyed the film (it was beautiful), and recommend it because it makes one want to know more about the artists, and that era - be it book, film, documentary, whatever.

    This is a beautiful movie! Robert Pattinson did a remarkable job portraying Dali\'s mannerisms - I was reminded so much of the Dali that I had seen on TV during my growing up years. He nailed Dali\'s narcissism and decision to choose becoming a celebrity over artistic integrity and human relationships. Javier Beltran played Federico Garcia Lorca wonderfully! I have my fingers crossed that we will get to see much more of him in English speaking movies. After watching this film, I have been moved to learn all that I can about Lorca, Dali, and Bunuel and the time in history that they lived. Little Ashes goes down as one of my all-time favorites!

    I clicked 5 stars instead of 1 star, so I actually upgraded a movie that should be giving 1 star or less!
