This review is from: Orlando [DVD]  (DVD)
Love Orlando and Sally's interpretation of Virginia Woolf's book. Glad Sally brought this story to the public in her way. Sad that Virginia's life came to an abrupt end and delighted that after all those years her considerable intellect was highlighted by Sally in this artistic form. The film is visually beautiful and hauntingly nostalgic. Thought the unsual choice of Quentin Crisp as Queen Eliz.1st. worked extraordinarily well and loved Jimmy Sommervill's musical renditions which, again, were so appropriate for the reign of Eliz. 1 since women's voices were not considered suitable for musical productions of that era.
