Movie Reviews

Most Incredible Concert Film Ever
Kevin J. Roberts | 09/20/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The main feature film from 1976 is overwhelming. The performance itself is incredible, but the filming is especially unique. The camera is focused for nearly the entire performance in a close-up on Nina's face, with great clarity and detail. The shots of her piano playing are also very well done. Nina's interaction with the audience is riveting. This is an absolute must."
The best ever - buy please

"I experienced the great Dr Simone in 1978 and 1979 in London and she was well - just Nina - totally eccentric and yet riveting.
The 1976 Montreux concert is a great experience - yes the diva is so great it defies description. She lives life (I got life) OK. I Wish I Knew and Feelings are so stellar in emotion that it is difficult to convey how great the interpretations are. Lets just say that they take your breath away.
The 1987 and 1990 bonus tracks are OK but they are too edited - Nina is best experienced in totality which the 1976 concert is. I thoroughly recommend that you buy this concert DVD and trust that Dr Simone's estate release many more of her concerts on DVD - once you see her live you can never forget how great she was.
A Diva supreme"
Feelings, nothing more than feelings

"I really enjoyed this dvd. The filming is great and Nina has some funny and touching moments as she performs. I also learned a little more about her as she would talk before some of her songs. This is truly a treasure. The song that touched me the most was "Stars/Feelings" The other songs are great too, but that stood out. It almost actually made me emotional. She took feelings a song that most people heard another version of and changed it into this beautiful and touching song, just by the way she sung it and the way she changed the words. YOU HAVE TO SEE IT!
Breath Taking

"I was given this DVD as a gift a long while ago - and it sat on a shelf. Just played it this evening and I am awestruck at its power. Dr. Simone is more than expressive when she performs. I felt her passion so personally and deeply, because she lets it all out for the world to see. And her skill at the keyboard is simply unbelievable. I am grateful to the camera man who shot so close to catch her soul and her keying. I cannot recommend it enough. In fact, I have never bothered to write a review on; but this DVD was so compelling that I had to tell someone about it."
