Marco Polo is a masterwork, expecially for its historical reconstruction, that is almost flawless. Good actors, great direction and Morricone's soundrack create a great show.
Unfortunately, this is nothing more tran the trasposition in dvd of A PART of the original tape (that is 8 hours long). There are many cuts to shorten the movie, at the expense of its continuity. Since no effort has been made to restaurate it, the quality is very poor, both in image and sound. Last but not least: there are no subtitle in English, just in Dutch.
I'm disappointed to have found all these things only when I had the dvd in my hands. Even if I'd buy a partial show (since this is a must in historical play), I'd prefer to know this in advance.
Anyway, the seller's service has been very good in dispatching and post-sale cares.
