Original title: (Goya)
GDR/USSR, 1971, 129 min, color
In German; English subtitles

As a painter in the court of King Carlos IV of Spain, Goya (played by the great Lithuanian actor Donatas Banionis) has attained wealth and reputation. He believes in king and church, but he is also a Spaniard who dearly loves his people – a contradiction that presents a deep dilemma.


Based on Lion Feuchtwanger’s novel, Goya is one of only ten East German films originally shot in 70mm. This release is the director’s cut and shows the influence of great filmmakers from Buñuel and Saura to Eisenstein, as well as Wolf's influence on others, such as Carlos Saura.
