Soledad Miranda

Here are a synopsis, pictures, and video from Lola la piconera. For more details about this movie, click here. If you have any pictures from this movie that I don't have, please contact me!

This popular story is set in Cádiz during the Napoleonic invasion and Peninsular War and is about Lola, a singer who wanders through the streets with her songs. However, her external joy is misleading because the man with whom she is in love is on the other side, in the French army.

This clip features some of Soledad's scenes from Lola la piconera. Soledad plays Rosarillo, a sympathetic gypsy whose husband earns bread "by the sweat of his forehead." She sings several songs; click here, here, and here to see those videos. This movie can be ordered in the store.
