Mimi with lipstick,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: La Boheme - The Film  [DVD] (DVD)
Being a huge fan of both Villazon and Netrebko I was realy looking forward to seeing the DVD which had been quite well reveiewed. Unfortunately though huge disappointment loomed. The unclear sound is really off putting - recorded at a live concert with the voices of some of the Bohemians being of different singers. It would have been better recorded in a studio. The biggest problem though, is the production which is so unrealistic. Mimi with lipstick who, although she is dreadfuly ill and dying, is wandering around in the snow looking like a fashion queen with bare shoulders etc etc. Footsteps are loud and accentauated in the apartment. The only thing that really holds it togeher is Villazon, as passionate as ever, and the acting of the cast.
