Blood Wedding, written in 1932 by Federico Garcia Lorca and first performed in Madrid in March 1933, has become ever since a universally recognized masterpiece in modern literature. La Novia presents a love triangle between The Bride, The Groom and Leonardo, which will result in a tragic love story. 

The Bride is not a subtle film, nor should it be. It wears its themes and symbols on its sleeve. This is high drama after all, but Ortiz never lets is become melodramatic nor does she shy away from letting the poetry (and blood) flow. This is an incredibly well-crafted and detailed film, with strong performances and a gorgeous setting that lets the poetry speak to the audience without reservation.

 Tomando como base la obra de Federico García Lorca, Bodas de Sangre, La novia relata la historia de un triángulo amoroso entre La Novia, El Novio y Leonardo. El consejo de una mendiga el día antes de la boda convertirá la historia de amor en un hecho trágico.
