Agatha Christie's Poirot - Collection 2 [DVD] <b>DVD</b> ~ Poirot
2 of 2 people found the following review helpful
I wanted this in time for long Christmas evenings, and Amazon delivered it very quickly. As a collection of Hercule Poirot stories (the definitive David Suchet version of course), this is one of my favourites. There are 13 stories including one full-length one, each meticulously crafted, with wonderfully chosen locations, and for most of them, the original casting. For Poirot connoisseurs, this DVD is a "must have".

This version of Don Giovanni is one I have always wanted, with a superb cast and the magisterial conducting of Otto Klemperer. But I do have one criticism, and that is that in some arias the recording is less than perfect. For example in Act 2, in the trio with Giovanni, Leporello and Elvira, some of the orchestration is almost inaudible; so is the mandolin in Giovanni's famous solo that follows.

Searching in shops, I could only find the re-make of this title. Why did anyone bother with a re-make when the original is so perfect? The casting, the sumptuous vistas of Rome, the story by Tennessee Williams... all of these things make it one of the best pictures to watch if you are in search of Italy and la dolce vita. I can only thank Amazon for their ability to make available the unavailable.
