DDR UdSSR 1970/1971 Spielfilm

Summary

Goya

Don Francisco de Goya Lucientes (1746 - 1828) is artist to the court of Karl IV of Spain. He is well known and well-to-do, but feels himself becoming more and more remote from the daily life and suffering of the Spanish people. After meeting the singer Maria Rosario in a Madrid tavern, where she is singing revolutionary songs, he becomes even more reflective. Rosario is hauled before the Inquisition. Goya is invited to attend as a warning not to stray from the official path. But it doesn′t stop him from increasingly leaving the castle to portray the desires and nightmares of simple people in his paintings. Soon the Inquisition is on his trail.
Konrad Wolf films Lion Feuchtwanger′s historical novel as a modern, colorful, parallel. How closely can an artist align himself with the powers that be if he wants to be honest and creative?
