Absolutely engrossing film.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Valentino [DVD] (DVD)
I purchased this DVD to replace my very old VHS version of "Valentino". I am a great admimirer of the late Rudolf Nureyev and of Ken Russells films. The combination of both to tell the story of Rudolf Valentino during his last 5 years - rise to fame, difficulty in coping with it and untimely and sad death - is amazing. It is not always comfortable to watch being very explicit in parts and brutal in others but overall an engrossing film to watch with great performances from all actors involved. If you enjoy Ken Russell's productions and his dramatic approach then you will want this. However, I must stress that it is not for everybody!
