Movie Reviews

Beautiful
Charles Hodge | Timberlake, NC USA | 08/20/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I loved this movie and the acting, my only problem is tha Amazon tells us the movie is in English and it's not. Stop fooling the customers. If fact Amazon needs to change all the other foreign films thay say are in English and are not. Customer beware."
One of the best movies I've ever seen!

"If you like the music from the opera Carmen you will love seeing it sung in a contemporary setting! I rarely buy movie DVD's but this one is wonderful!"
Fantastic!!!

"This movie was well done!! The cast was very talented and the story which had a contemporary theme made it enjoyable to view. I wish there were more movies as this. U-Carmen may well establish a precedent for more movies like it. Good work!!"
Great Movie

"I saw this when it was released at IFF and it was fantastic- I've been waiting for it to come out on DVD- it's subtitled in English- but it's so good - that just like live Opera - you forget about that after a few minutes- it's a well done production- nothing amature about it - Paula has an amazing voice"
