Great movie in many aspects. I was looking to see more about Goya the painter but was surprised to learn about the Inquisition and persecution of Jews.

Olivia, I agree. The plot was a bit overdone but still a wonderful period piece and a fascinating look at the upheaval in Spain.

The costumes and strong cast are distracting enough that make up for what I thought was an ill-paced plot but it kept my attention and I'd recommend it to those that enjoy period dramas.
