Longer than a music video, shorter than a feature film, this is essentially a short film version of Pink Floyd's album "The Final Cut". As such, the visual material is much the same as a ... See full summary »
Live versions of the songs, filmed in an old Pompeii amphitheater. Songs included are Echoes (split into 2 parts), Careful with that axe, Eugene, A saucerful of secrets, One of those days, Set the controls for the heart of the sun, Mademoiselle nobbs (Seamus, but with Rick's dog on vocals). "Careful" and "Set the controls" are shot at night with minimal lighting, setting a beautiful mood. And the live Saucerful just has to be seen, with Waters jumping around in the sunlight banging the huge gong. The 80-minute version features studio footage from the recordings of Dark side of the Moon, with alternate versions of Us and them, On the run and Brain Damage, as well as hilarious interviews with the band (don't miss Waters raving about the great economical collapse, and Nick whining about the crust on the pie).

During the performance of "One of These Days" Nick Mason loses a drumstick and gets a new one without skipping a beat. See more »
In both parts of the song "Echoes", Nick Mason's sunglasses disappear and reappear a couple of times, indicating that the performance in Pompeii was filmed in sections rather than just one take. Or that there were two takes of the song and footage was used from both. See more »
All that media stuff is all very irrelevant. If people come to a concert and they don't like it, they don't come again.

Unbelievably nostalgic yet so fresh! Brilliant DVD, the music is fantastic as always, the sound quality, visuals and whole production amazing. For years I only knew what they looked like in the 90s and later. To see how they looked in the 70s is awesome. I used to feel ambivalent about some of their music, I loved some of it but not all. Having this DVD to play and replay made me realize just what great musicians they were and still are and I usually follow it with Pink Floyd at Live 8, when the four of them got back together again for the first time in years. Amazing to see the march of time in their faces, they're my generation so its not off putting or anything. In fact it just confirms what we've all known for so long, Pink Floyd are Timeless (and still very handsome! I'll always love you David! Sigh!)
