The story of a married silkworm merchant-turned-smuggler in 19th century France traveling to Japan for his town's supply of silkworms after a disease wipes out their African supply. During his stay in Japan, he becomes obsessed with the concubine of a local baron.
A number of songs performed during the two concerts filmed for this release were cut: Games Without Frontiers, Family Snapshot, Red Rain, Shock The Monkey, Biko and Here Comes The Flood. Red Rain was added as a bonus track on the 2012 Blu-ray re-release but the other songs are still unavailable. See more »
A while ago my mom came home from work and she bought this DVD. The first thing she said was that I would really like his music, but I wasn't interested in it so I didn't watch it. A few days later I turned on the DVD player, forgot this DVD was in it and started watching.
After the first song "Come talk to me" I was sold and I couldn't stop watching. I was really impressed by the beautiful voice of this man and his energy on stage. the music is wonderful and very variated from slow, lovely ballads to energetic songs which really make you jump off your chair (or whatever you're sitting on :P ).
I recommend everybody who's still doubting to watch it, to just do it and let the feel-good music come to you :)
