A joy to watch
30 December 2001 | by (Detroit, Michigan, USA) – See all my reviews

In today's fast-paced world, not often one can sit for six hours to watch a film documentary. However, you will not be disappointed viewing this masterpiece.

I agree with the previous person's comments & highly recommend this classic. It is hardly ever shown.

I managed to see it at the art institute over 10 years ago and am hoping to see it again. I hope there is still a good print in existence. Release it on DVD, please!

At last Criterion is releasing a DVD on 4/24/07. I just got a newsletter from Criterion and it is part of their "Eclipse" series.
