4.0 out of 5 stars Mildly Exciting, 7 Dec 2013
Difficult to criticize this film in detail without revealing some of the plot twists (such as they are). If you're after character development; cogent plotting; a satisfying denouement, then you might want to look elsewhere. What this has to offer is a beautiful setting, a hoot at the hack narrative, stirring music and some much-admired character actors having an undemanding holiday. Accepted as sunny tosh, with plenty of running about, this is an enjoyable watch.

This double represents good value. There's a wide selection of Jobim's oeuvre and the only clunker (track 2 cd 1) is the disco version of 'Girl From Ipanema'. Yes, Tom's voice can be a bit thin, but I prefer to think of it as endearing fragility. If you love the man and his music you can't go wrong with this collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars 'In such an ecstacy!', 16 July 2013
Another astonishing jsp collection. This set is a revelation: the music is extremely vibrant and the rhythms endlessly intriguing. I was unaware of this musical tradition prior to buying the collection, but I'm very glad these Bulgarian treasures have been made available. A small quibble: while the set is beautifully presented and contains some fascinating snippets of information, i would have liked a comprehensive booklet, even if this pushed the price up. Were Lauren Brody to write an accompanying book, anyone having heard this set would wish to own a copy.
