a crippled Louise
14 December 2005 | by See all my reviews

If you are a music lover (as well as a film goer) you will surely care to have a COMPLETE version of Albert Gance's MUSICAL film, one which does not -unexplanably- leave out the precious first 5 seconds of the opening credits (which use the very same music that can be heard in the famous characteristic opening bars of Charpentier's opera & masterpiece) ---which is unfortunately what the Bel Canto Society otherwise good transfer does ! So perhaps you'd better not hurry to get this DVD crippled copy & luckily stick to your French 1994 René Château VHS edition (and why not burn it to a personal DVD...) or try and get a second-hand videotape on the Web !
