Movie Reviews

Disappointing images
Alana London | New York | 12/24/2004
(2 out of 5 stars)

"I think the producer meant well but the movie was disappointing because the sharpness and contrast of the images was so excessive that it was difficult to make them out. Manet uses a lot of very vivid colors including black in his painting and some of the images especially Olympia comes out so dark it is almost all black. Too bad, I so looked forward to this movie. The information was fairly ok though. I will look at it again anyway. For good Manet images go to Rosamund Bernier Impressionists series on four videos, especially the one entitled Modern Art and Modern Manners. These videos are all available used or new on Amazon or Barnes and Noble. I hope someday someone will make a really well done retrospective on DVD of Manet's work"
Poor quality
Manet | Netherlands | 12/24/2004
(2 out of 5 stars)

"Very nice to find a DVD about the artist Manet with interesting and insightful comments and so quit disappointing the very poor quality of the images and paintings which form the very topic of the movie next to the life of the artist who made them.
All this gives a feel of a very low budget movie
this of course doesn't make it a cheap one to buy.
