Music with mammaries

I am an opera lover. As a healthy male, I also love the female breast. So this film should have been nirvana for me. It wasn't bad. But all through the film, I obsessed about how old Joe Green (Giuseppe Verdi) would have reacted had he been able to see it. The musical side is good, not great, but adequately good. But even for Italian opera, the dramatics are overdone. Good lord... Amneris behaved as though she was suffering apoplexy. And I'm not really sure why just about everyone in the film went around topless. (And almost bottomless.) Skin flick meets grand opera. Sopranos reach high notes more easily without bras. Wives devise new tactic to attracting bored husbands to culture. Whatever! It certainly is an unusual approach. But unorthodox as it may be, they have not touched the wonderful, passionate music of the maestro. And, if you also like boobs, well, you get two for the price of one. Two shows that is...
