Jean-Pierre Cargol lives and works in Montpellier in southern France. He is currently a contractor flamenco music in his home town. It is cousin of flamenco guitarist Manitas de Plata and son of Hippolyte Baliardo. His artistic nickname is El Rey, but real name is Baliardo.
I have this movie and find that it is an excilent movie both for its acting and storie line but also for its documentary aspect too. young Jean-Pierre Cargol did a remarcable jod of such a difficult and complecated role. A very underrated film.
I like coming of age movies. at the moment my favorite movie is "Jet Bot" but I love movies with young actors.
