"[A] visceral plunge into the life of a famous torero played by real-life bullfighting legend Miguel Mateo, known as Miguelin. Charting his rise and fall with a single-minded focus on the bloody business at hand, the film is at once gritty and operatic, placing the viewer right in the thick of the ring's action, as close to death as possible. ... [T]his is a not just an electrifying drama but also a profound and moving inquiry into a violent world and it's perhaps the greatest bullfighting movie ever made."--Container

Tyvian Jones, uno scrittore inglese - trascurando la fidanzata Francesca, peraltro oggetto delle premure del produttore cinematografico Branco - lascia la città di Venezia, dove risiede abitualmente, per inseguire a Roma una donna enigmatica, Eva. La donna accetta di trascorrere un week-end con Tyvian appunto nella città lagunare, concluso dalla richiesta di un compenso da parte di Eva. Deluso, dopo qualche tempo, lo scrittore sposa Francesca. Sempre a Venezia, durante un'assenza della moglie, ritrova Eva accompagnata da un'occasionale amico. Tyvian e la donna trascorrono la notte insieme. L'indomani Francesca li sorprende; sconvolta, fugge e la sua imbarcazione si infrange contro una chiatta. Lo scrittore medita di uccidere Eva, ma non ne è capace, perché è troppo legato alla sciagurata. Si trascina da un bar all'altro in attesa delle brevi visite della donna, sempre in compagnia di un uomo diverso
