Plot Outline: About the young life and loves of artist Salvador Dalí, filmmaker Luis Buñuel and writer Federico García Lorca.
Plot: In 1922, Madrid is wavering on the edge of change as traditional values are challenged by the dangerous new influences of Jazz, Freud and the avant-garde. Salvador Dali arrives at the university; 18 years old and determined to become a great artist. His bizarre blend of shyness and rampant exhibitionism attracts the attention of two of the university's social elite – Federico Garcia Lorca and Luis Bunel. Salvador is absorbed into their youthfully decadent group and for a time Salvador, Luis and Federico become a formidable trio, the most ultra-modern group in Madrid. However as time passes, Salvador feels and increasingly strong pull towards the charismatic Federico – who is himself oblivious of the attentions he is getting from his beautiful writer friend, Magdalena. In the face of his friends' preoccupations – and Federico's growing renown as a poet – Luis sets off for Paris in search of his own artistic success. Federico and Salvador spend the holiday in the sea-side town of Cadaques. Both the idyllic surroundings and the warmth of the Dali family sweep Federico off his feet. Salvador and Frederico draw closer, sharing their deepest beliefs, inspirations and secrets, convinced that they have found a kind of friendship not dreamed of by others. It is more that a meeting of the minds; it is a fusion of souls.
Movie Quotes: Salvador Dalí: From this point on, my real life begins.
Federico García Lorca: Your real life? And what about this life? You can't just abandon everything!
Salvador Dalí: Abandon what? Sitting in an art room all day, going out of my mind with boredom? Drinking myself into a stupor every night? I'm so sick of it!
Federico García Lorca: How can you say that? Your painting's never been better. This isn't you, Salvador. What's happened to you?
Salvador Dalí: Federico, why can't you just be happy for me?
Crazy Credits: We know about 2 Crazy Credits. One of them reads:
Just prior to the closing credits, Leonard Nimoy is heard reading a new version of the updated traditional “Star Trek” introduction. In the “Star Trek: The Next Generation” TV series, the introduction speaks of the Starship Enterprise's “continuing mission” as opposed to “its 5-year mission”, and now in the movie we hear “its ongoing mission”. The rest of the wording including how that mission involves boldly going “where no ONE has gone before” (TNG TV series), rather than “no MAN” (original TV series) is kept the same.
Goofs: We know about 47 goofs. Here comes one of them:
Continuity: After Spock boards the Vulcan ship on board the mining vessel, Kirk is seen walking through some pipes. His Starfleet phaser has switched to a Romulan gun (longer barrel and no lights), before switching back to the Starfleet one again in the next scene. He actually acquires the Romulan gun a few scenes later.
