De Sable et de Sang Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

The title of Sand and Blood has led some to assume that this 1988 French film is a remake of the old warhorse [[Feature~V6087~Blood and Sand.~bloodandsand]] In fact, the only thing the two properties have in common is a bullfighter as a protagonist. A sensitive matador ([[Performer~P11778~Patrick Catalifo~patrickcatalifo]]) grows weary of killing and tries to escape his chosen profession. He meets a young, musically inclined doctor ([[Performer~P25062~Sami Frey~samifrey]]) who likewise despises bullfighting. The two form a warm and giving friendship, which threatens to rupture when a woman enters the picture. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
