This film is really great, funny, and totally original. It's got quite a bit of hidden symbolism, some of the quotes are very clever, and the music really fits the film. I thought it was a lot better than Matilda, and I think people would really enjoy this film more if they watch it with an open mind. Overall, I think this film is really underrated. If you haven't seen it yet, I'd recommend you do, you won't regret it.

No words can describe how amazing this movie is. The part that really sticks with me is the last half hour. I've seen this movie maybe 30 times, and every time it's the same. There's so much energy, so much emotion, I've never seen anything like it. The artistic part was really well done, I was so impressed with the animation, there was so much potential to make it unique, but this movie didn't let you down. It wasn't an entirely commercial success, but I do think it will be in the annals of the best movies of all time. 9.5/10

I think this film is amazing. In fact it is a perfect movie. The art direction is just perfect. It is artistic. The cast is excellent. The script is superb. The music is beautiful. The actors are excellent. What more can I say? I don't want to spoil it. But I think the message of the film is something that is important. It is important to know that you are a unique individual, that people who judge you, love you and dislike you are all the same and that you have power to be yourself. So, just don't be afraid of who is right or wrong. Just be yourself. And if you have a message, just keep it in mind. Just write it down. Be the best you can be. That's what the world needs right now. I don't want to say more. Because I think this film deserves to be rated a 9 out of 10. Thank you!

This is a well crafted film, beautifully photographed and filmed, and superbly performed by the entire cast. It's not a musical, and it's not a documentary, but it's definitely a film. Although I wasn't expecting to like it, I loved it. The acting, production, and directing were all top notch. I've always been a fan of Richard LaGravenese's music, and this film features some of his best work, both in the score and in the film. He composed the haunting, melancholy score, and the film is incredibly well-made. The cinematography is fantastic. You'll see the magic of the theater, the vibrant colors, and the night-time lighting. The lighting is beautifully shot, especially in the scenes in which Puccini performs the choreography. The entire film is beautifully photographed. The music, which is one of the most striking things about this film, is also excellent. The songs are haunting, and the lyrics are always relevant to the story. This film is great entertainment, and is very well-made. I highly recommend it to anyone who likes musicals. I loved it, and I'm glad that I've watched it.

This film is one of the most beautiful and thought provoking film I have ever seen. It is about a young woman who is locked up in a convent and has to work to pay for her education. Her family are very poor and she is looking for a better life. She is introduced to the "Bohème" by her sister. The film is very funny and interesting. There are so many funny scenes. The music is so beautiful and it is so sad and sad. The fact that this film is based on a book made me really love it. The movie is also very sentimental and sentimental people should not see it. I am going to buy this movie and watch it over and over again. I love this film and this is my favourite movie.

If you have never seen a comedy before, but are expecting a lot of laughs, you'll enjoy this movie. It's probably the most awkward comedy I've seen in a while, and it's almost as much about its characters' emotions as it is about comedy. It's a completely self-aware movie that very well describes the nature of the modern dance craze. The dialogue is mostly improvised, and the sets are a huge departure from the typical dance film set. The characters are also unique, and not just in their emotions. There is not a one-dimensional protagonist, and all of them are very interesting and fun to watch. Even the score, while lacking in the actual dance choreography, is a really unique element. The acting is also a huge departure from the typical movie. I never thought that Sally Fields would go on to do more than a few film roles, but she was actually perfect for this role. The entire cast was really good in their respective roles, and some of them deserve to be recognized. It was definitely one of the most enjoyable movies I've seen this year, and I highly recommend it. My rating: 9/10

I like this movie very much. It is a great way to enjoy music, I just love it. It has many great songs and well arranged. I am a lover of music and this movie has given me a new respect for the world of music. It is a great piece of work and I recommend it to anyone who likes music.

I have seen this movie more than 20 times. I just love it. The story is so interesting, and so different from the one we are used to see in our movies. The music is awesome, the costumes are fantastic, and the actors are very funny! I recommend it to all people, especially to people who are not into these kind of movies.

This is a film that is fun to watch. The people who are playing in the film are at their best, and the actors are really good. This film has the heart of a good classic film. It is a perfect fit for families. The film is a real family film, and is suitable for the whole family. You will not be disappointed. This is a perfect family film, with great music and a wonderful cast. This is a film that will be watched over and over again. This is a great family film, that is a perfect fit for families.

A beautiful movie that takes you into the life of a ballerina who is trying to come to terms with a broken heart and the death of her mother. The movie does not simply tell a story, it makes the viewer reflect on his or her life and the way it is. The movie uses many different forms of music and narration, and I think that's the best way to go about telling a story. It seems that a lot of people who have seen this movie find it very hard to understand it. But, I don't think it's because the movie is hard to understand. It seems that they simply don't understand the music. The way it's played and sung and sung is amazing. It is truly amazing how these kinds of films are made and how they are presented. I think that this is a great movie that can be enjoyed by everyone.

A pre-corporate 30-something (Stephen Dorff) who in the first half of the film (as he is planning to get married) loses his wife and son to illness. To avoid the prospect of losing his young daughter to disease, he takes her to an unconventional party. After his sister's funeral, he begins to lose it all. Although it is a pretty standard morality tale, this is still a fun film that has a lot of charm. As usual, the musical numbers are a great help and if the dialogue weren't so simple, the film would be so much better. A lot of this has to do with the fact that director Andrew Jalbert (who also wrote the music) is so very artistic and inventive with the scenery. Most of the shots, especially in the first half, are so bright and colourful that it is impossible not to be amazed. He also manages to be a great storyteller, and I'm not just talking about the film's twist-happy ending. I also liked the way that the film starts with the piano tune for La Bohème, and then as the story unfolds, the film switches to the German dance-set "Gloria, The Huntress" -the theme that drives the final scenes of the film. But what really makes the film a great deal is the story. Not only is it very original, but it also has a lot of depth. It tells us an interesting and realistic story of a guy who loses it all and who becomes a wannabe-philosopher. The film uses this to tell the story of a guy's life - or rather the life of a typical 40-something. His experiences are also told from the point of view of someone else. Although he has his normal problems and all that happens to him is related to his attitude, it still has a lot of resonance. Although I don't think it's a great film, I think that this is one of the best movies I've seen in a long time. It's one of those movies you can watch over and over again and still be in awe of the great film that it is. It has a great story, great music, and great acting. The writing and acting are great, although I think that Stephen Dorff has not quite got the right tone in this film. It is possible that he is too over-the-top in the second half. This is a rare problem in many of his films, but he does make up for it in the second half of the film, where he is often strong. I think that this film is a great example of what happens when a director "plays it safe". The rest of the film is great, but it is a little flat. There is a little too much of an emphasis on one character in the beginning of the film, and it doesn't help that they only appear for a short time. One thing that I really liked about this film is that it does not treat itself like an Art-house film. It is a film you can watch at home and still be entertained. I would have liked to have seen some more musical numbers, but it was still a great film. It's a simple story of loss and coping, and if you are like me and can't watch straight movies, then this is a good alternative.

This is the best film I've seen all year. The music is amazing, the characters are also great, and the story is so amazing, I just can't stop watching it. I hope to see it again soon. The movie has a very strong message, but I think that it doesn't need to be said. It is a film that should be watched by everyone. I just can't say anything bad about this film. If you haven't seen it yet, please do. I hope you will like it as much as I did.

I'm surprised this movie didn't make it to TV. It was actually a huge hit on video and I think it was an amazing success for all the wrong reasons. The music was a masterpiece, the dancing was fantastic and the directing was just as good. This movie would be very difficult to make today, but that's what made it so wonderful. It was made on a very low budget, but the directors were able to bring together a great cast and choreographer to create a masterpiece. I'm really glad that I found this movie on the net and that I've been able to see it for free.

A wonderful nostalgic look at the musical heyday of the 1960s and early 1970s. As a former devotee of "La Bohème" myself, I can vouch that the visuals of this film are just as wonderful. The film is basically a documentary, meaning it follows all of the moves and personalities of all of the different major players in the performing and musical aspects of the show, and also provides an interesting back-story of the sometimes chaotic career of Vincent. With all that being said, this is a very difficult film to review, as a lot of the details are lost over time. The music is wonderful and haunting, but there are two key scenes in particular where I almost jumped out of my seat. The first is when the narrative begins to drift in and out of time, and the second is the one when Di Nicolas strikes the set. The latter is more amusing than anything else, as the set has a real disco feel to it. It's very well-done, and the scenes with it are absolutely gorgeous. I really liked the dancing that the film presents, and the editing is pretty good. The film takes a long time to get started and it's a really good idea to keep that in mind as the film progresses. There are some nice flourishes and little quirks to be found throughout the film, like how it's got a lot of musical numbers, and how the costumes are so dorky that you have to wonder why the actors would be wearing them in the first place. Overall, I recommend that you go out and rent it.

Puccini (Catherine Deneuve) is a dancing little girl who lost her parents and lives with her Auntie Mame (Naomi Watts) in a little flat in Paris. She's an interesting character. She's a singing bird who loves dance and Mozart. She's got a high flying party spirit and a sweet heart. She's the voice of the movie. She can be super annoying at times but that's because she's so unpredictable. She's a flirtatious girl but you still can't help but like her. She's a fabulous actress. She's delightful and really is a charming character. She's the smartest of the whole cast and she's smart. She's got a young, cute face but she's also got a sharp sense of humor and that's why she's the best. One of the great things about the movie is that it's so sweet. There are all these great French foods that are served. It's a movie that will make you laugh, make you feel good and make you want to dance. In that sense it's perfect. It's got all the ingredients of a good movie. I think it's a great movie. It's got a great soundtrack and it has all the characters you love. I like Catherine Deneuve, I love Naomi Watts and I like Catherine Deneuve's character, she's a marvelous actress and she's so lovely and so lovely to look at. I recommend this movie.

If you are like me and have never seen a Pucini movie before, then this one is for you. This is my first review on IMDb. I have watched this movie for the first time about 4 years ago. It was my childhood favorite and I loved it so much that I still watch it even today. I just love how the costumes are so good and I am happy to see the costumes change so much in this movie. I am a huge fan of Pucini and I know that I will never grow out of this love for him. I have always felt that he is a brilliant and talented guy, and this movie is proof of it. I love the way the costumes change and how the story is so amazing. I hope you enjoy this movie as much as I did and maybe you will also enjoy this movie. You will not be disappointed. I give this movie a 10/10. Enjoy!

I must say that I was quite shocked when I saw this movie on the TV recently. I had expected it to be the complete opposite, with the usual tedious sequences of various sketches and the occasional conversation. However, I was wrong, and I have to say that the end is the best one of all the videos I have seen. The most interesting thing is that it doesn't really contain any songs at all, only parts from the previous videos. There is also a sub-titled version which has been shown in various countries. Anyway, it is a very pleasant experience to watch this one, and I would definitely recommend it to all the friends who are also fond of this kind of French movies. But if you don't like the usual stuff, you will probably like this one more. Good Luck!

This film is beautiful. There is not one piece of music in the movie that isn't from the composers of the olden times. Even the sound of the original instruments is almost the same as the modern instruments. It is wonderful to listen to the classical music in this movie, not only the music of the modern era but also the music of the music of the great composer of the eighteenth century, Lorenzo Rossellini. The characters are very interesting, with the exception of Zepiri (that's just for fun). You could care about each one of them, even if the plot seems a bit confusing at times. The other interesting thing about this movie is the atmosphere it gives. The costumes are quite nice, the colors and the style of the movie are beautiful. The characters are really well written and the movie is full of great ideas and witty dialogue. The dialogues are sometimes very clever, sometimes just bad jokes. This movie is an ideal film for people who like good movie, comedy and music.

I like this movie a lot. It is a great dance. The music is the best. It is a music that I have heard a lot of times, but I never remember. I love it and I am a fan of the music. The story is not the best, but it is an amazing dance. I love the way they dance. They don't look like the normal dancing. I love it. I really love the music and the dancing. I am a big fan of Madonna, and I think this is the best dance she ever did. I think she is one of the best dance artists that ever lived. This movie is amazing. I recommend this movie to everyone. 10/10.

What a great little movie. I thought it was a bit slow in parts, but overall it was fun to watch. I'll keep this short. I've never seen the film, but I thought it was really great. I loved all the songs that the band played on the instruments, and I think it was very true to the musical style of the seventies. It was also funny. It was certainly a great way to start off the year. I'd recommend it.

Lack of a Director and a Production team that knew how to act up some music are two major problems in the development of this musical. The content is sung without an objective actor, and we follow the main characters almost through a bit part (who performs a song too). The music was supposed to bring some music background. The results is a mixed mess. The original aim was to create a symbolic musical form, but it is all confusion, and the music has some good qualities. In some scenes the sound-track is present, but in other scenes, it is present with only a few lines, and this is not enough to create a background for the music. As a result, we don't get the feeling that music is part of the story. The problem is even worse in the scenes where the music is present. I am sure that in the future, the performances will be really good. The whole production is a bit disappointing, but at least there is the presence of the characters from the film. And the direction is very good, as I had expected. Puccini: La Bohème has a good content, and has a good music. The problem is that it has a weak production. The movie was badly shot, and that's a big problem for the production of a musical. The quality of the production is pretty much worse than the content. There are only a few scenes, where the production is good. For example, when Puccini is dancing in the street. In other scenes the production is really bad. The productions in the movie are mixed, like the performance of the main character. My vote is nine. Title (Brazil): Not Available

I watched the movie yesterday and I loved it. It is a great musical movie and I recommend to everyone to watch it. If you like to dance and sing along to your favorite songs, this movie is for you. It is a great movie for people who want to learn about the history of the movies. If you want to watch a musical with dancing and singing, I recommend to watch this movie. It is very enjoyable and I recommend to everyone to watch it.

I was lucky enough to see this movie in its original French language version when it first aired in the mid 1990s, and in a classic interview with the director that I taped a while later. He stated that he had his heart set on the movie for the entire three years of its production, and it was not for the fact that he had a wife and three young daughters. No, he was adamant about this because he said that he knew that he would love this movie. And so he was and has remained so. It's his most profound movie, and it's clearly not an 80's movie, because I've seen much of it and it's a very different kind of movie. In fact, it's a total remake of a completely different movie, the masterpiece "La Bohème" of the late-eighties. The film starts with the earthquake of 1934 that takes place on a French coast. It's a wonderful and sad time, but by that time, it seems like it would never happen again. But this terrible event does indeed take place. And the new quake strikes in a French town where the novelist Jacques Lacan, also known as Paree, lives. He's a wonderful and somewhat eccentric man, with a wonderful face, and a beautiful woman, his wife Sophie (Alexandra Bader). He's a traditionalist and he expects the new earthquake to take place. But the earthquake of 1934 is not to be a normal one, and its power is to shatter the world as we know it. People think that they are going to be able to live and forget about what happened, but they cannot. So they try to find ways to defend themselves. One of the most interesting things about the movie is that it goes back and forth between the novel's story of Paree and the film's version of events. I was very surprised to find this out and to find out the reasoning behind it. It seems as though the director was trying to be as faithful to the novel as possible and he succeeded in that regard. There's an important point to note here: in the novel, the earthquake that takes place during the novel's world-building is never shown. It's left up to the imagination of the reader, but here, the director actually shows what is happening and it's very effective. The novel actually manages to bring a whole new story to life and bring it into the real world. He was not going to show us a hundred percent authentic version of the novel, but it was enough to make us think in the same way that we think when we watch the novel. And I believe it's something that the director really did succeed in doing here. Also, the acting in this movie is very good. I've never heard of Agnes Varda before, but she was absolutely brilliant in this movie. She's a wonderful actress and is a beautiful woman to look at. Sophie is also very good, and we can see a very different side of Alexandra Bader. And that's how I saw the movie. But it's not just the acting that made the movie great. I think the story was also very strong and very moving. It's quite a different story from the story of the novel, but it was still a very emotional story, full of sorrow and sadness and heartbreak. I was moved by this movie and I can say that the director has done a very good job in making the movie this way. I recommend this movie to anyone who loves the novel and the novel's story. It's a must-see for fans of Alexandre Dumas.

Fantastic movie for people who like movies about young people, from their first years to their thirties, and not just one movie, but a whole series. The movie is about the problem of many people that all want to be the best, and in order to do that, they want to be in the best company, in the best competition, in the best culture. All the characters are really interesting, especially the older ones, the ones that show us the adolescent side of their life. And the thing that really makes the movie is the music, the music is perfect. Not only for the music, but for the music itself. This movie is definitely not for everyone, but for people who like movies about young people, or people who love their movies, you have to see it!

I was pleasantly surprised by this movie. I'd heard of it, but hadn't seen it. And I'm glad I did. It's a must see for anyone who appreciates classical music. I found it very original, and I'm glad it was made. The costumes are wonderful and the music is wonderful. The acting is wonderful, as well. In the end, I'm glad that it was made. I hope that someday this great work of art will be re-released on DVD. A must-see.

This movie is a beautiful mix of music and lyrics. It's great for the heart and soul, but it's also good for the mind, as well. The music and lyrics flow and never seem to stop, and you'll think twice before watching it again. It's just great. Poggi, a very wise and unusual singer, does not let his music stand out. There is nothing overly or unusually musical about it, but he let's it all out. The singing is also pretty good, if not great. Poggi is also good at showing the human side of a song. The movie is a lot of fun. I've loved it ever since I first saw it, and I haven't gotten tired of it since. It's a great musical and an incredible film. 9/10

The magic of the play has been revived in all its glory in a comedy about the theme of life and death. Perfect! It's perfect. Without doubt. I really love this movie. It has everything. The dancers, the acting, the story, the music, the direction. It's all wonderful. I love this movie a lot. And I want to see it a lot more. It's really good! It has everything I love. It's great!

This is the movie I had been waiting to see.I had read many reviews which made me believe that it was not up to the standard that some of the reviewers had left it.I was right, I'm so glad I saw it and I'm not disappointed at all. Not many people are going to see this movie, and you don't have to like cheese to love it. After watching the movie, it was a film I was longing to see, and I got it.The movie is a wonderful combination of music and dance, mixed with magic and a magic that will carry you to the top of your head.There is no doubt about it, this is one of the best movies I've seen this year, hands down. Recommended!

Why not? This is a musical film from the director of the hilarious The King of Comedy. This movie is about a married couple, one of which is going to the BOHEME. And the other is going to be her wedding day. As you can probably tell by this review, I absolutely loved this film! I had fun laughing throughout. I especially enjoyed the humour in the language of the town. I could see that it was going to be a great comedy, and it definitely delivered on that. This is one of the best musicals I have ever seen, and it is definitely a must see for any film fans! I would recommend this movie to anyone, and I do believe that if you don't like musicals, you will definitely like this movie. You won't be disappointed. This is the best of the best.

Puccini: La Bohème is a wonderful film. In fact, it's a classic. Not only is it a must-see, it's also one of the most well-made films I've ever seen. It's full of colour and texture, and it's got a great soundtrack. The characters are all great and likable. The only real complaint I have is that the film's ending is a bit abrupt, but it's just a small complaint. I've seen this movie three times now, and I love it every time. It's a classic, and I would recommend it to anyone who loves colour, texture, and an exciting story.

The family of a nine-year-old girl's sojourn in a psychiatric institution (she had a baby six years before and lost it) is her salvation. Unfortunately, her presence also has dangerous consequences. Her family must take a series of unexpected decisions that could bring them into a life of violence, peril, and tragedy. This film is a triumph. It isn't original, but it is original enough that it must be appreciated for what it is. The cast is delightful. Everyone does a good job and the film is, of course, a very charming comedy. It was even adapted from the novel of the same name by the same author, D'Emilio Otero. This is a must-see film.

Puccini: La Bohème is an absolute masterpiece of its genre. A virtuoso production that defies easy categorization. A perfect blend of classical music, visual elements and choreography. A breath-taking spectacle to watch.

I'm a huge fan of the old comedy comedies, which have an essential art in their genius. And then, almost all of them are about the joy of playing a comedy on stage. But this one comes close. It's also a show with lots of great music and amazing scenery. Some of the scenes are so artistic that they do not even feel like a story, they are simply a wonderful thing to look at. All the characters are very rich and lively. Even the leading actor, Puchardo, who was very weak in the first film, has a great role here. All the famous actors are in the same film. And all of them seem to be having fun, even when they are not playing. It's a wonderful movie with a lot of flavor. The "duet" between Puchardo and "the Duke of Marlborough" is a really funny scene, while the two are playing their songs.

This film is a wonderful treasure. The scene where the joker makes the sign of the cross is my favorite scene in any movie. This film is truly a masterwork. Every scene is beautifully and skillfully performed. It is a must see. Do not miss this movie!

I was a little bit surprised to see that the rating was 8.2. It was a bit underwhelming. I think I was expecting something much more epic. If you like La Bohème, you will like this. It is very lighthearted. It was very enjoyable and I loved it.

I found this to be quite a film. The premise was interesting and the script was very well written and put together. The characters were well developed and the story was quite interesting. It had several twists and it was very well done. I thought the music was very well done and the movie was well made, in fact, it was very well made. There were a few technical problems I would have liked to have seen improved, for example, some of the shots weren't steady, but those things were only a minor part of the movie. The camera shots were quite good and the movie could have had a few more scenes of the movie. There were a few very long scenes that could have been shortened. Overall, the movie was very well done. It was an interesting, entertaining movie and it was a pleasure to watch.

I was really taken by surprise when I got to watch Pucini: The Beginning and immediately bought the DVD. This is definitely the best film I have seen in a long time. I really love it and want to see more! Pucini is a perfect example of what great films should be. Pucini will keep you entertained throughout the film as well as knowing what's going to happen in the end. The soundtrack is the perfect compliment for the story and some of the songs are very memorable. The costumes and makeup are fantastic and it really looks as if you are watching a real theatrical production. The music is fantastic and very hip to the dance scenes in the film. It just fits. The costumes are great and very authentic to the 1930s period. The costume designer is amazing. It really looks like they did it themselves. The story is great. I think most people can see the reasoning for many of the events. The costumes and makeup are fantastic and it really looks like they were really in there. I think this film is definitely a must see. I hope the DVD has everything in it. I will definitely buy the DVD when it comes out.

I really enjoyed this movie. The music is excellent and the characters are real. And the play itself is a real success. It is about a man and his search for the answer to his wife's death. The idea that he is locked up in a room and people keep calling his name. It is a very sad and thoughtful film. It is well cast and all the actors give wonderful performances. I really enjoyed this film.

Before going to see this movie I read some reviews that all agreed that it was an all time classic, but I have yet to see the original, so I can't really comment on that. First of all, I must say that if you don't like opera at all, I am not going to say you are 'stupid', because this movie is a MUST SEE. This is definitely the best opera I've seen, and I think that's probably because I know more about the history of the history of the opera, than most people. It's well worth seeing, especially if you have seen the original.

I heard about this movie and was excited to see it. It was very good, but not great. I was very impressed with the acting, and the musical score. I have never seen the film so much, so I am still on the edge of my seat. It did surprise me that they left out the rest of the pieces. But overall, a great movie. See it if you like your music good.

This is a truly great film, and a fitting tribute to Puccini. Puccini himself was killed by the Nazis at the age of twenty-one. The movie gives a much more complete picture of his life, as he was much more an activist than a "party man". He was one of the great Jewish artists, and was the one who became the face of the Jewish people in the west. This film is definitely worth seeing. And the film makers, who did the filming, also know their craft, and I applaud them for this. The director of this film, and of the upcoming film, "The Best of Puccini", has a similar interest in this subject, and he is a very talented and talented film maker. This is one of those films that is hard to watch, but not just because it's a documentary. It's a true story of a life that many will never get to know, and even if they do, it's only through this film. I know the ending, and it is sad. But, it is a sad ending, because the life that this man lived is a true story. I am very sad to see that it's not a true story, but if it is, the end is wonderful. I am happy that I got to see this film, and to know a little more about Puccini. If you want to know more about Puccini, check out his writings, and watch the documentaries, "A Closer Look at Puccini", and "The Time that Changed the World". They are very interesting and very interesting.

I've seen this movie many times, and always am amazed at the fun, non-traditional story of life and death in the 18th century. The music is wonderful, as is the use of colors, especially the magenta-yellow scenes. It is a bit dark, and I've found it to be a bit slow at times. But it is the story of love and death, and the importance of not being seen, of the dying and the life after, and of looking at beauty and the dead. I highly recommend this movie.

I never got the chance to see this film, as it was not released in the UK. I'm pleased to say that this film is a must-see for anyone who has a passion for music. It's great to see a film which is purely about the art of music and not about any film-making techniques. What a joy to see some of the best musicians of the 20th century working together in a simple, yet wonderful film. I am looking forward to more from this film. It is also great to see that I was right in the middle of the Festival of Berlin when this film was shown. The atmosphere in the theatre was fantastic and the audience was totally in tune with the film. We all sat and watched, and I heard everyone applaud after the film was over. I think it is great that film makers are being given the chance to share their love of music with the public. What a privilege.

I've watched this movie twice, and was quite surprised to find it so entertaining. I saw it in a local French theater, with the English translation, so I think I was not too far off the mark. It's very well-done, with a really interesting and witty script. The songs are so upbeat and exciting, that they actually made me dance. I also really liked the mannerisms and antics of the musicians. I have to admit, the music and the costumes are a bit overdone, but they do fit with the mood of the film. They are just the right amount of garish and sexy, and the ballet dancing is really well done. The whole plot is quite complex, but it's so easy to follow and the plot twists are so creative that it doesn't seem all that unbelievable. The cinematography is so beautiful, that you actually see a lot of Paris in it, and it's very easy to feel like you are in the old Paris during the 1920's. I don't think the only thing that would make this movie more enjoyable to French people would be a few more "kiss" scenes. (It's a bit ridiculous that there are no German or Italian songs on the soundtrack, though.I'm not sure why, maybe that was intentional.) If you are a big fan of this genre of film, then this is definitely worth a look.

A colorful parody of the famous Fabergé egg recipe from 18th century France. The actor is an obvious copy of the original, only this time he is a composer, rather than an actor. "The Puccini" is a fine presentation of the music and especially of the orchestration. The main feature of the film is the "chamber-music", the Piazza San Giovanni in Rome, arranged by the film's director. The score is a mix of the most famous passages from Piazza San Giovanni, from Piazza del Popolo, and the classic Piazza Nazionale. This unique and original composition is very impressive and is completely comparable to the real one, which was created in the early 19th century. In the film the composer is a heroic Roman general, Fabricio Poggi, a very important composer of the times, when the city was under constant bombardment of the Prussians. There is also an important "army" character, Father Fabricio, played by the actor, who has the same characteristics as Father Poggi. The two actors are convincing, and they certainly have a great chemistry. The director takes a lot of liberties with the original text. The novel "Il Postino" by Visconti is taken as a reference. The music is very different. One can enjoy the rich orchestral background of Piazza San Giovanni, but the film does not exactly belong to the genre of Italian historical dramas. It could be more interesting for a small group of people who would like to see a film like this. But the film should not be taken too seriously, since it has a great script, and it is also a very good stage production, where the actors really work. The filming of the Piazza San Giovanni is really very good, and the directors' vision is very detailed. The movie is too beautiful to be taken seriously. It is a spectacular success and I am sure it will be mentioned in the same category as many great films of the 90s.

A little Czech-dubbed version of the ballet, This movie's a must for any classical dancer, whether they have to be up on their moves or not. I think it's a great concept for the original film, but the movie itself is very much better. This film looks like the original; the cast, the music, the choreography. It looks and feels like the original, which is great. But, as I mentioned before, the film is very much better. The ballet scenes are as good as they can get, but the direction is much better. They didn't waste time on much and, since they had such a great cast, I can't complain. I really like the choreography in this film, but it still needs some work. The direction is mostly fantastic. I think that it's great to have a movie that has a lot of great actors and it looks like they have a great budget for this film. The way they dance in the ballet is very exciting and really impressive. And that's not just for the choreography, but for the way they move and the way they move in this film. It's a great film, but it's definitely not the best of its kind.

As the title suggests, this is a musical about the music of an 18th century Bohemian theatre troupe. It is not the best musical ever made, nor is it the best movie, nor even the best picture. But it is, on the other hand, the only one that I have seen that has both a song and a movie based on it. And it is definitely the best one. It does not just follow the basic plot, but includes all the main characters from the 18th century (there is also a character who belongs to the old fashioned Bohemian actors). And while it is not the best musical ever made, it is definitely the best movie based on it. Yes, the movie does contain several musical numbers, which include several original songs, but they are often much better than the songs in the movie. The songs are actually very good, so much so that they are better than the original songs in the movie. For example, I never expected to hear a song from Maria Callas, but when I heard her song, I thought it was awesome! I really don't know why I like this movie so much, but I do. For those who love the music of the 18th century, you will love this movie. For those who don't, you probably won't like it either. I recommend it to anyone who wants to see a musical and see it in a musical way. It's a movie for people who want to see a musical with the music in the movie.

I have seen this film twice, and thought it was a real surprise. The sets were very good and the costumes fabulous. My two favorite characters, that of the spoiled rich girl and the famous actor who takes her under his wing, were both very well done. They had the right mixture of charm and charmlessness, and the two were well-balanced. The movie was somewhat slow to begin with, but I think the audience got into it. My favorite character was the mother who was a vain and spoiled but funny woman, but when she said "I am afraid" it was worth the price of admission. I thought the music in the beginning was good, and the sets were beautiful. It was worth the price of admission. I think this movie was about as good as Marnie.

Though I've never seen this one I will go back and watch it at some point, I've always enjoyed the older films of Bonnaire and of course Berlioz. I don't think it's fair to rate the newer ones negatively simply because they are newer. Berlioz is a legend. I think he's got it all in all. The current crowd might not like his movies. They just think he's stupid. I just think his films are genius and must be seen to be believed. I love him. This film is no exception. I love it, even if it's not all that great. I think that Berlioz is one of the greatest directors of all time, and this is certainly a beautiful film. It's a bit long, but that's the charm of his films. The great performances are fantastic, especially from Godard, De Sica, Verlaine, De Palma and of course Bonnaire. I think it's not only about the beautiful images. I think it's about the emotions. This film is a testament to what the human being can do with the power of cinema.

Well, first I would like to say that I am quite new to this movie genre. I was surprised by the presence of such actors as Bill Nighy, Patrick Stewart and Cate Blanchett. I had expected them to be more British and Americanised but they did not disappoint me. The songs are beautiful, romantic, sentimental and quite funny. And yes, there are some funny and fun sequences as well. Well, it is true that some scenes are quite hard to understand. But this is the basis for the praise I am giving it. And, although I have not seen the whole film, I still like it very much. It is a perfect movie to watch when you feel like a normal human being. The story is very nice and the music fits the scene perfectly. I also liked the well constructed and touching endings. This movie will make you smile and you will remember a lot of it. And you will be happy with the beauty of it and with your own thoughts, feelings and emotions.

As a child I did not appreciate the work of Richard Puccini and often felt he was incapable of conveying the emotion that one would expect from his music. Now, I feel this music has become more important to me as I have developed my knowledge and appreciation of the film. I have no doubt that I will find myself becoming more attracted to Puccini's music in the future. I am even more confident in the fact that I will become a much more accurate lover of this music. The creation of the theme is a wonderful performance, and one that should be given the widest audience possible. It is a very good movie and will hopefully help open up the world of Richard Puccini's music to people who do not appreciate it. The best thing about the movie is the whole presentation, especially in the final few scenes. Richard has a great imagination, and he makes some wonderful use of his music, but he also understands how to convey emotion to the viewer. I am not the only one who can appreciate that. He should be very proud of his efforts and the wonderful movie he has created.

This is the third effort by Wolfgang Peterson and while it is very faithful to the original, it is much more commercialized. The focus here is much more on the music than the narrative and in my opinion this is the main reason for this film's success. The story follows the struggles of a very young man, Leopold, trying to become a conductor and performing with his orchestra. He is willing to go on stage with his quartet if he gets the chance. The director tries to establish some of the ambiance of the period and some of the traditional concepts that went along with the period, but the overall structure of the story is what will have you seeing this film in two different states of mind. One of the main criticisms that I have heard of this film is the music, but I think it was created well. For the most part the score is catchy and the performances are done well. The same can be said about the camera work, it is nicely done and not all the shots are of great quality. While the score has its flaws, it is the good acting and production design that make this film worth watching. As for the plot, it is certainly better than the first effort, but the fact that it is a commercial effort does make it seem a little forced and there is some dialogue that is not as engaging as I would have liked. Overall I think it is worth a look, especially if you like Wolfgang Peterson and enjoy his movies.

The original composer is a nobody, and you know this from the opening titles. The music is only like the original, with some changes. Also, the director and actors have much different styles, from the classic 'Titian' (Filippo Tovoli) to the more recent 'Visconti' (Giovanni Bertorelli) (both roles seem to be based on the guy from Salo, but the one who died was never a known one). The music is very good, the songs are always catchy and always performed by Ennio Morricone. The director is a very good guy, he knows how to film, and he knows how to use the camera, and the editing is very good. The film is very funny, but the second part is a bit too long, because of the first part. The main actor is not a bad choice, and it is good to see a famous Italian star in a big-screen movie, but it would be a bit better if this guy was the only actor, since he has no great charisma. The main problem is that this guy is not in the movie long enough to understand everything. If you are a big fan of the original version, watch the version without the second part, it is much better.

This is a pretty good film, very well done. The score is great, the songs are well done and the style is perfect. The characterizations are not only interesting, they are also very well done. The movie has a story arc, is very logical and it makes sense. You can tell this is a fairy tale with fairies and magic. I also liked the photography and editing in the story. The scenes are well executed and there are no flat moments. The music is very good and fits the scenes. I like how the story is not centered on the main character, and how the story is told through different characters, but overall the story is great. It is very well told and it is consistent throughout. I also like how it does not have any real stand out characters, but how they all seem like normal people. I also like how there are also many children characters, which is interesting. The biggest issue I have is that the characters are too dark. The story was done better in the 1960's, but I would have liked to see the characters in a darker, more dramatic light. Overall, I am glad I watched this movie and I recommend it to anyone who wants to see a very good fairy tale movie.

From his directorial debut to the follow-up, "La Bohème", Lamberto Bava's musical comedy "Puccini" (Rent) is full of hilarious moments. The story is of two disparate artisans who embark on a quest for an elusive painting. Bava and his cinematographer work well together to provide a movie with a very enjoyable, off-the-wall feel. Bava has a certain style to his movies and "La Bohème" is no exception. The film is full of fast cuts, whimsical dialogue, and camera angles that create a realistic feeling. The music, composed by the French pianist Claude Debussy, is very fitting. I think the film is going to be quite popular with the French movie-goers. There are so many other beautiful songs to choose from and I'm sure people will like the film more than I did. I personally think the movie is worth seeing and I'm sure everyone else will too. I'll definitely be adding this to my movie collection.

The History of the Black Mass is a weird film for a very specific type of audience. The History of the Black Mass was made as a very low budget film by a small production company. This is actually a very good thing as the film is truly low budget and one could actually see the love for the art and the effort put in. There is a lot of talented actors in the film, the characters are all interesting and different and the music is really good. The Film's director, Vincent Canby, is known for directing other low budget movies like, Easy Meat and Three Days of the Condor. The Black Mass is definitely a film that is worth seeing if you enjoy the art of the genre. I definitely recommend this film to anyone who loves the art and history of the genre and is interested in the process of filming a film.

I had not expected much of this film. It was a "tired old" concept for the 1980s and it does not seem to have found its audience. It seemed to me that the film had been made only to make money and to pass it on to the youngsters. That is all the more reason why the film had to be so badly made. However, the first 30 minutes or so were a good surprise. The story was OK. It was interesting. It made the film worthwhile. However, towards the end the film got a bit absurd. It seemed that the director had lost the plot. It became slightly ridiculous. The scene where the camera views the music room is also quite amusing. It seems that the film makers had either lost interest or had not seen the same sort of film as the others. All in all, the film is a good way to pass the time. It is a bit better than the average but still not great.

This is a strange, poetic and fascinating film. It is not a single short film, it is not a single narrative. It is a series of images, the frames of which move as one moves around in the film. The frames move in a curious way, that they give the illusion of movement. They move as one moves around in the film, the way we move around in our lives. The effect of the frames is breathtaking, their non-linear movement is a delight, but the images are not an aim, but a means, for the sense of the story. The images are so full of detail, so full of life, that they force us to view each frame with a kind of intimacy. The rhythm of the film is like a moving dream, like a day dream. It is not a story about the life of a man, but about a man, and the universe that he lives in. The film is as much about the way that he thinks, as it is about his actions, it is not about him. The images are as much about him as they are about the images, and the images are as much about him as they are about the images. We have to see the images to understand the stories. This is a strange film, and not for everyone. If you have any interest in art, you should see it.

I thought this was an amazing film. At first I didn't really understand why this film was called "Puccini: La Bohème". But the movie goes on and on and it's even more awesome. My favorite thing about this movie is the music. There are also some songs in this film that I love. Overall I really love this movie. It's pretty awesome, and I definitely recommend it to anyone.

This film is a compilation of many earlier PV albums, but it does not sound as if it was done in one take. The result is that it is very difficult to figure out which version is being played. The mixing of the songs has to be one of the most remarkable things about the film. Some of the songs are in the original and some are in the different versions. Also, some songs are extremely distorted, and in a strange way, those effects create a more realistic tone. This creates the impression that this is not an isolated incident. A third important thing about the film is the editing. The various tracks are shown at the same time, but the visuals are not synchronized. This is unusual for a TV movie, which usually works on a piecemeal basis. To understand the technical reason, just watch the cut of the recording of the song "Let's Pretend to be Happy". The song is supposed to be in one take. Yet, one of the people in the studio is cut to the background and the other one is cut in sync. That is because the shots are not synchronized. You would think that a movie like this would be a perfect match for a computer, but no. As the scenes are often repeated, the version was compressed, so the screen is reduced to make it fit the screen area. If this happens, the picture becomes a bit blurry. But when you watch the film again, you see the picture is much sharper, but the quality is still great. This is probably the technical reason for why the movie is so much more interesting than a typical PV video.

A reworking of the famous 1867 edition, this made for TV movie has an entirely different story to tell than the original.The climax is entirely different, and not quite as pleasing. I like the animated version better.I liked the ending, however.

As someone who has gone through the process, I think this is one of the best videos I've seen. The group has a lot of excellent musical numbers. I have a problem with the writing of some of the songs, though. They're very boring. There's a song in this that starts with the word "crap" and then gets re-used over and over. The only thing that is really different is the lyrics. The singing is quite good. There's one that has nothing to do with the story but is sung in a way that's just absolutely wonderful. It has so much fun to it that I can't help but be mesmerized by it. I don't think there's much of a point to this, though. I was not impressed with the way the movie moved along. It was pretty slow and dragged on a lot. The movie seemed to be going in circles. I really don't understand why it was called "La Bohème." I'm surprised that this has been so well received.

I'm only a casual fan of this film, and a die-hard fan of Bresson's art, but I saw this on television. The title refers to the voice of the diva, and the music is beautiful and haunting. It's great to hear people laughing, crying, and talking (I assume) about Bresson's work. I'd love to watch this again.
