La CelestinaStreaming Video - 2005 | Spanish
This vintage dramatization of La Celestina-arguably the most influential work of the early Renaissance in Spain-places the spotlight squarely on Celestina, an old bawd who dominates the story's action. Recruited by Calisto to help him seduce a young woman named Melibea, she becomes the center of a plot that begins in comedy and ends in tragedy. Attributed to Fernando de Rojas, La Celestina is remarkable for its originality, depth, handling of dialogue, and drawing of character and is often considered the first European novel.
