Petr Weigl is not the first person to think that he can film an opera with beautiful people on the screen and the fat ladies confined to the soundtrack. He is hoping for the best of both worlds but he ends up with the worst. The voices just don't fit the faces and the lack of synchronisation is laughable. I was most sorry for the little girl who played Flora. Not only was she given a woman's voice but she had to spend the entire film with what looked like a dead ferret on her head. Britten's opera comes over very well if you listen with your eyes closed.
