Francesco Rosi directs this adaptation of Bizet's dramatic opera. Don JosÃ© is a guard who begins an affair with the tempestuous Carmen. He is imprisoned and loses his job, then flees with her to the mountains. When the relationship starts to break down JosÃ© refuses to acknowledge it, and will not leave even when he gets news that his mother is dying. Carmen meanwhile has taken up with the bullfighter Escamillo. Julia Migenes-Johnson and Placido Domingo star with Ruggero Raimondi, Faith Esham and Jean-Philippe Lafont.
