Not everyone likes bullfighting. I can dig that, We all can’t like the same things. When the Spanish movie Manolete/Matador’s Mistress (Menno Meyjes) came out in 2008, some were thrilled and others were repulsed. There was one good thing about it: The film caught the attention of many who would have had no interest in the bullfight otherwise and led them to want to see one, just as Blood and Sand (1941, Rouben Mamoulian) did decades before. Historically, however, the movie made only a few accurate points. There was a torero known as Manolete. He did smoke cigarettes. He did have a thing for an actress known as Lupe Sino. He was managed by a man called Camara and challenged by a young torero named Dominguin. He did get killed by a bull in Linares, Spain. Outside of that, what is presented on the screen is hogwash. In short, the movie is full of more bullshit than any bullring corral.    

As I watched the movie for the first time, I hated it due to all the embellishing in the plot, though Brody looked like Manolete and Cruz looked like Sino. I was thinking how they would have been better NOT to have titled the film after a real man, but simply made the script the work of fiction it seemed to be and called the matador by a fake name.

 

I was adding the Dominguin character (Manolete’s rival and the culprit some still blame for pushing him to his death on the horns) to my list of inaccuracies as well, when something caught my eye. An actor named Nacho Aldeguer, whom I had never heard of before, was way too short to be the towering Dominguin, who came close to what I would guess six feet tall if I remember correctly from my lone encounter with him. Such was one more unforgivable error in casting and the script. I was screaming my frustration at the television screen over how ridiculous this kid looked as Dominguin when something happened. This was something that changed my whole attitude toward the film and has led me to watch it again and again in disbelief:

Nacho smirked.

 

So what? Well, read on.

The real Dominguin had a certain arrogance about him that could not be imitated, let alone duplicated. It was the role he played. He smirked disdainfully at the bulls, at the critics and at other toreros. He was the emperor of the bullring and they were the peasants. His persona was saturated with supposed self-love and he had the ability to back it up.

Nacho smirked again and strutted across the screen in his suit of lights, during the opening parade, in what was to be the last time his character and Manolete competed together.

 

While he physically was too short to be Dominguin, Nacho had the mannerisms of this man down to the letter. He was imitating that which could not be imitated. The real-life Dominguin bathed in self-adoration - whether it was real or staged, no one will ever know for sure, but his portrayal of himself as a God rather than a mere man both earned him the love and loathing of the fans. It also propelled him to stardom. This was the aura of ego the real Dominguin gave off and no one since has been able to match. At least it’s been that way up to now.

Throughout his brief part in the film, Nacho became Dominguin. The smirk, the strut, the holding up of his index finger to signify he was and forever would be the number one in bullfighting, even in his early career competition with Manolete, where he had not yet earned the title. The dead came to life once more on screen. Dominguin lived again! Nacho was not acting as Dominguin - for all practical purposes, for a brief moment or two in cinema magic, he WAS Dominguin.

His performance saves that movie. It is a role I can watch time after time, staring in amazement at how this little actor who I never heard of before and was too short to play the character he played, made me forget about his difference in size. The mannerisms, the expression. The simple gestures.

Again, he imitated that which could not be imitated.

Other people felt the same way. Since this time Nacho has risen considerably in status as an actor. People recognize him when he is out in public. He is now a star. 

Aldeguer has excelled not only in film, but voiceover, television and music. He has proven himself far more than just a great Dominguin imitator. He has done much since gracing the screen as Dominguin. Hopefully he will do more.

The young star is on the rise and worth keeping an eye on.
