Movie Reviews

Happy purchaser
J. A. Pyne | Gisborne, New Zealand | 01/26/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"At first I was a little sceptical at buying this DVD as I am more favouring of straight concerts than documentary but as a big fan of Katie Melua I couldn't resist. So glad I am that I chose to purchase. This is a superbly presented documentary of a very unique event and the preparatory work that went into making it all possible. The concert itself was, as one would expect of this superb artist, simply magnificent. Not only is Katie a stunningly beautiful lady, she has a voice that I rate as the greatest female voice since Connie Francis.
If you are a fan then this is a must. If you are not yet a fan but enjoy music of the very highest quality then buy this or any Katie Melua release and be delighted.

"Katie Melua is a fantastic young singer.This documentary details the adventure of the deepest underwater concert ever performed.The Film shows how Katie and her band had to train for the concert 300 meters below the sea and some of the concert itself.Great Documentary and a must for all Katie Melua Fans."

"I am a HUGE Eva Cassidy fan and Katie Melua has a very similar sound that can best be described as a songbird much like Eva has been described. This DVD of her concert beneath the sea is compelling to watch. It takes you through all the legal and safety issues including helicopter and boat drills that I would want no part of and I am a retired U. S. Coast Guardsman, yet, Katie did it in style. This is not your typical concert type DVD. It is in two parts, first the lead up to getting permission to perform 300 meters beneath the North Sea in the leg of a producing gas offshore rig and then the concert itself. I highly recommend this DVD to everyone regardless of your particular taste or style of music."
Katie delivers, production & technical crew drop the ball

"While this is far from the worst concert DVD that I have watched, it ranks as one of the most disappointing. And, yes, I was aware before I bought it that much of the video chronicles the preparations for a concert deep underwater in a gas production platform. As someone who is interested in science, I found this portion of the video mildly interesting, but I buy concert videos for the music and, in this department, the video fails to deliver. Katie's predictable excellence is nearly completely sabotaged by the film's production values which contrast dramatically with the quality of what appears to be the use of videotape to document concert preparations. Worthwhile concert DVDs tend to offer a feeling of presence, provided by exemplary use of technology. Onstage, in this video, Katie and her supporting band appear more like cartoon characters, and offer no feeling of intimacy that such a small audience and venue could have provided. Contrast this with the terrific examples of the medium's potential provided by Tori Amos' "Live at Montreux", Fleetwood Mac's "The Dance", Alison Krauss + Union Station Live, An Evening with the Dixie Chicks (apart from the intermittent and irritating grainy film inserts), and Nora Jones' "Live in New Orleans" on the esteemed Blue Note label. I look forward to Katie's next release.
