Carmen is a 1983 film adaptation of the novel Carmen by Prosper Mérimée, using the music of the opera Carmen by Georges Bizet. It was directed and choreographed in the flamenco style by Carlos Saura. It is the second part of Saura''s flamenco trilogy he made in the 1980s, after Bodas de sangre and followed by El amor brujo.

The film''s basic plot line is that the modern dancers re-enact in their personal lives Bizet''s tragic love affair, up to its lethal end.

The film won the BAFTA Award for Best Foreign Language Film. It was entered into the 1983 Cannes Film Festival where it won the Technical Grand Prize and the award for Best Artistic Contribution.[1] It was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film.

A group of flamenco dancers are rehearsing a very spanish version of the Prosper Merimee''s drama. Antonio (the coreographer) falls in love with Carmen (the main dancer). Their story then turns similar to the play. Written by Michel Rudoy {mdrc@hp9000a1.uam.mx}

While rehearing Carmen of Bizet, the middle-aged choreographer Antonio brings the sexy Carmen to perform the lead role. Antonio falls in love for Carmen, who is an independent and seductive woman incapable to accept a possessive love. When Carmen has an affair with another dancer, Antonio is consumed by his jealousy like D. José in the original opera, entwining fiction with reality. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
