There are subdued sequences of tenderness and pathos as well as scenes of cataclysmic violence: the near escape of Kilroy the battle to ride the escape plane; and the wild fiesta to crown the "tired old peacock," Casanova.
"A strange and disturbing drama…as eloquent and rhythmic as a piece of music." —NY Times. "CAMINO REAL is a brilliant and riotous adventure. It succeeds in making tangible for all your senses the delirious pains and ecstasy of a wild dream." —NY World-Telegram.
