Bethany Cox says it all, bless her, leaving little to add about an enjoyable film of a wonderful production.
I liked the girls' frocks, dead right for the period and subtly signalling their characters. For Fiordiligi (blonde Miah Persson) a tight bodice and close-fitting skirt in patterned eau-de-nil, to show her outwardly more severe stance. But lots of bosom and voluminous candy stripes with bustle for the more frivolous Dorabella (brunette Anke Vondung).
Close-ups, so often a difficulty when filming opera, here give us lots of physicality, with the young people's hands going all over each other's bodies in ironic contrast to their frequently high-flown words. Though officially left to our imagination, one can readily believe that there are two consummations within the 24 hours of the bet.
