sorry, it's awful
14 February 2005 | by bbock-2See all my reviews

Sorry to say, but this movie was the worst I have seen for quite a while! The theme itself is - no doubt- beautiful: love, able to cross the borders of death: When Mimi kills himself after the end of his love-relationship with Venus, she follows him to the Underworld to bring him back.... but everything in the film seems so exaggerated that it is hard to decide, whether this is all meant serious or it is supposed to be a satire on the main motives of love in myth and literature! And if so, it's not convincing. My personal advise: Don't invest in a ticket for this film, but go and buy yourself a copy of the classical composition from E. Gluck, that is part of the soundtrack. Much more beauty in this one.
