“This is a most engaging, thoughtful, beautifully mounted film, with suitably painterly camera-work by Javier Aguirresarobe. “

(Philip French, The Observer, May 2007)

Near the turn of the 18th century, the court painter Francisco de Goya is accused by The Inquisition of making pictorial representations of sensuality and evil, and has to defend himself in front of the Church court. In the end, the painter is spared, and he goes unpunished. However, a different fabricated case brought by Brother Lorenzo involves a very young Inés who was a model for the painter.

Inés, a wealthy merchant’s daughter, is tortured in jail to confess to a crime against Christianity. During this time, her family is not given any information about her. Fifteen years later, the Spanish Inquisition is abolished, but Napoleon is marching into the country. In Napoleon’s service is the fanatical (but this time secular) former Brother Lorenzo.

About the movie

“Goya’s Ghosts” gave Forman the opportunity – after working on films about W. A. Mozart, Andy Kaufman and Larry Flynt – to make another dramatization of a historical figure´s biography. The film begins in Spain, a country overwhelmed with disorder inspired by the neighbouring French Revolution. The church attempts to strengthen its power through the intensive pursuit of freethinkers and heretics and by re-establishing the right to torture suspects.

 Goya is a popular artist who paints the Queen and even the chief inquisitor himself. When Inés is imprisoned by The Inquisition, and despite her innocence pleads guilty during torture, her father asks the influential Goya for help.

Goya becomes both a mediator and a witness to the hopeless fight between Inés´ father and the inquisitional machine. Eventually Inés’ father tricks Lorenzo into confessing heresy, thereby proving to the Church the absurdity of using the right to torture and the worthlessness of his daughter´s confession. Regardless of this, the girl remains imprisoned.  

Fifteen years later, Napoleon invades the country and abolishes The Inquisition, setting Inés and the rest of the prisoners free. But this is not the end of her struggles because while she was in prison the revolutionary guards killed her family. The desperate woman turns to Goya (who is already deaf) to help find the daughter she gave birth to in prison,

During his search, Goya meets a prosecutor appointed by the French and recognizes him as Lorenzo. Goya learns that Lorenzo is the father of Inés’s child. Lorenzo attempts to kill both Inés and his daughter Alicia, but before he is successful the British Army arrives.

This spectacular parable is a comment on despotism and power, and the blind fanaticism that devours not only its victims, but also its own executors. It reflects the director’s important personal experience with the Nazi and Communist dictatorship. At the same time, the film can also be viewed as a more up to date commentary on of the start of the Iraq war when the American public were hyped up and overwhelmed by political fanaticism.

In addition to this the film outlines the absurd mechanism of historical trials. These trials were set off by a religious inquisitor who started committing bloodshed in the name of God, yet at the same time committing crimes of fornication, murder and even the denial of his faith. We come to see that evil comes dressed up in different guises.

Throughout the film, Goya remains an involuntary witness who is unable to do anything else but paint the horrors around him. The painter’s dilemma is communicated through his sensual sceneries or expressive war scenes. The paradox of Goya’s life is that he was an acute observer of beauty, but because he survived both The Spanish Inquisition and the Napoleonic wars he became more famous for portraying and reflecting the horrors of his time.


  • The idea to make a film about the great Spanish painter Francisco de Goya and The Spanish Inquisition first occurred to Milos Forman more than 50 years ago when he was a student in Communist Czechoslovakia.
  • Forman and Jean-Claude Carrière (who speaks Spanish and knows the country) spent several weeks driving around the Spanish countryside and even made a second trip with Saul Zaentz in order to deepen their understanding of the country and its culture.
  • When asked why a film about such a quintessentially Spanish artist was made in English, the director replied, "I don't speak Spanish".
  • Before Milos Forman cast Natalie Portman in the film he did not know who she was. By chance, he saw a picture of her in a magazine where she looked like a young woman from Goya’s last painting “Milkmaid of Bordeaux”. When he found out she was an actress, he offered her the role.
  • Cayetano Martínez de Irujo y Fitz-James Stuart was an actor in the movie. He is the 13th Count of Salvatierra and the youngest son of the Duchess of Alba, one of the richest women in the world and whose ancestor was allegedly Goya's lover. Forman, Cayetano, and Cayetano´s then-fiancée, Genoveva Casanova y González met during a trip to Spain, where Genoveva showed Forman around a private collection of the Duchess of Alba that includes several paintings by Goya. Following this meeting, Genoveva invited Forman to her wedding. The director promised to come on the condition that the couple would act in his movie. In the film Cayetano plays Wellington, and Genoveva plays a harlot to be shipped with other prostitutes to America.

Milos Forman about the movie

  • “It didn’t really start with Goya at all,” Forman recalls. “It started when I was in film school and read a book about The Spanish Inquisition and an incident in which someone had been falsely accused of a crime.“
  • “The script was finished months before the Iraq war. There's a line in the film when Napoleon’s general says to his soldiers they´ll  be greeted with flowers as liberators in Spain. It's difficult to explain to people that the line was there before our vice-president (Dick Cheney, editor’s mark) said that. But of course it isn´n surprising that history repeats itself. After every disaster, every war, we scream, "We learned our lesson. Never again." And then it happens again. And we scream again. And then it happens again.“
  • “I didn’t want the actor playing Goya to be someone recognizable,” the director says. “For the fictitious characters of Lorenzo and Inés, it didn’t matter to me if a famous face filled the role. But Goya. Goya would come out of nowhere. Unexpectedly. We shouldn’t be able to recognize him from anywhere else.”
