Synopsis >

The Matador is the epic tale of David Fandila s quest to become the world s top-ranked bullfighter. Heart-wrenching setbacks and thrilling successes dramatize El Fandi s three-year journey across Spain and Latin America and into the pages of bullfighting history. More than one man s quest for greatness, Matador is a story of love of a son for his family, of audiences for their heroes, of a people for their cultural traditions, and of the bullfighter s paradoxical love for the majestic beast that he must kill to create his art. As David struggles to achieve his place in the pantheon of Spain s greatest bullfighters, he is confronted by those who question the place of this ancient and brutal ritual in the modern world.
