Movie Reviews

Wonderful film.
CelticWomanFanPiano | 05/04/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"All the movies in this series, produced by Devine Entertainment, are just exceptional. And this one meets up to their high level of quality. It is a story about Rossini, but while sticking true to the main historical facts, the film includes a young girl who gets to meet him through her Grandmother and her Grandmother's friend, a former rival. This movie presents Rossini in a very likeable fashion and the series appeals to both the young kid viewers and adults, who will benefit from the historical aspects of it. This is truly quality programming. It introduces one to opera and ballet and leaves one with a feeling of awe for both the composer and the art form. Wonderful for a family evening."
My favorite in the series

"Of all the wonderful videos in this series, I love this one the most. The fictional plotline that is woven around the facts here is perfect for Rossini; a sort of chaotic, lighthearted, and charmingly Italian tale (love, friendship, good music, and good food) that reflects his musical personality quite well. The little girl is a sweetheart, and there's just enough touches of romance and intrigue in this one to keep my 5th and 6th graders completely riveted."
Charming movie

"This film was one of the bestfilms from the composers series. My daughter loved it, she wanted to see it again and again. This film was also very hard to borrow from our local public library since it is so popular, more than other films of this series.
It had wonderful historical/cultural setting, beautful costumes. The action of the film was fast, vivid and positive. The girl, a ghost, was sweet. I wish the girl who played the role was a bit more convincing, especially in the beginning. Besides, all actors were very good. The film gave some ideas not only about Rossinim his most known opera (The Barber of Seville) and his music but about the times he lived in.
I recommend it to all!"
