The dream of reason (El sueño de la razón)

Set in 1823, in Madrid, the work focuses on the last years of the life of the painter Francisco de Goya, his limitations provoked by the deafness and his relations with Leocadia. The spectator immerses himself in the epoch, political and social situation of Spain. The illness of deafness isolates Goya more every day. Moreover, he gets involved in politics and has his differences with the monarchy. All of this is represented by the Black Paintings. The outcome is precipitated when the house of Goya is assaulted by the assassins of the King; Goya is mistreated and Leocadia is abused before his eyes.


RELEVANT FACTS: This dramatization of the last years of Francisco de Goya’s life offers a fantastic opportunity to recreate the century of the Spanish Enlightenment, the political intrigues of the time. Thus, it is possible to have a better knowledge of the great painter. In the cinema, the confusion between reality and unreality is contemplated: in the visual, the black paintings and, in the psychological, the perception of the painter against the rest.
