Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Allegro Non Troppo  [VHS] (VHS Tape)
Why is this delightful little film so difficult to get hold of? For a long time the VHS could only be obtained second hand (which is still the case of course) and there was no DVD. It has now been released on DVD, but the Region 2 version is unobtainable. Scandalous!
If you do finally manage to lay your hands on a copy then look out for the Bolero/dinosaurs parody of the "Rite of Spring" bit in "Fantasia", the "L'Apres-Midi d'un Faune" opening and the anti-fascist piece. When I first saw the film on telly I didn't make a note of what the music was to this bit. It was one of those whistle-along tunes that almost everybody recognises, but nobody knows what it is. On a second viewing I spotted that it was one of the "Slavonic Dances" by Dvorak, so I ran off to buy a CD - and it wasn't on it! He actually wrote two sets of Slavonic Dances. Finally, after some serious searching on i-Tunes, I found it. To save others the trouble it's Opus 46, No. 7, in C-minor.
