Short review
9 November 2003 | by (Bklyn., NY) – See all my reviews

A nicely shot, scenically attractive, and often moving, powerful and dramatic film. Well worth seeing for its looks alone, but fine score by Nino Rota and the voice of the great baritone Tito Gobbi make it a must for opera lovers. If the main theme sounds familiar it was used years ago for the theme song for a TV show called "Picture for a Sunday Afternoon".
