5.0 out of 5 stars Sissi films, restored and properly subtitled 14 Jan 2008
Format:DVD
A beautiful restoration of the three Sissi films, plus the first proper version with English subtitles. After so many years with only the rather heavily edited (three films into one film!!) and quite awful dubbed version available, finally the three films are available. Plus, the DVD boxed set has some great extras, including the dubbed version, which is quite interesting to compare with the newly restored subtitled films.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best of romantic film making - iconic status 18 Jan 2008
By Amelrode TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
The three Sissi movies launched Romy Schneider as an actress. If you are raised in a German speaking country you just will know it as every X-mas or Easter these movies are shown on TV. It is part of the culture and has reached iconic status.

It presents you in most romantic terms with the love story to the Austrian Emperor Francis Joseph and the Duchess Elisabeth in Bavaria, soon to be the legendary Empress Sissi who captured her contemporise and remains a legend till today. Of course, this is not about history to be learned as it operates with half truth and views from the 1950th. It is a movie to be enjoyed not an educational exercise. All is about beauty in every aspect of it. Just go for it.

Romy Schneider soon tired of the saccharine image these movies had bestowed upon her and moved to France where she became a most distinguished actress and giving remarkable performances in films such as Le vieux fusil, Max et les ferailleurs and the crowd pleasers, Les choses de la vie and Cesar et Rosalie. The harsh L'important c'est d'aimer, garnered her first Cesar (France's equivalent of the Oscar).

"Sissi sticks to me just like oatmeal" Romy Schneider once famously said. And in many ways it did. A story goes that - while Romy Schneider was still alive - a group of elderly women took a guided tour in the Kapuziner Gruft, the burial place of Austria's imperial Family. When the guide showed them the tomb of the Empress Elisabeth one of the ladies cried shocked out "Oh my God, Romy Schneider is already dead?!"

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely, Enchanting, Exquisite settings .. 5 May 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a set of 5 DVD 's. Considering the age of the origional film in 1957, the picture is incredibly smooth & clear.
This story is of Elizabeth (Sissie) Princess of Bavaria who married into the Austrian Empire. Her whole life story is retold in great detail with style. The costumes, acting and details are awesome. This is a film the whole family will enjoy.
It has a very contagious, feel good factor with watching this very long set of 5 DVD's. Worth every penny & more.!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great movie with historical settings 8 Jan 2014
By gilbert
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Excellent movie also for children, the box contains also a movie on young queen Victoria which is not so good.
Be aware that the info is misleading: the audio is in German with English subtitles.
