Movie Reviews

Verdi: recommended for opera lovers
Paulo Velloso | Sao Paulo, SP Brazil | 01/21/2007
(3 out of 5 stars)

"As I had seen this picture in the movie theatre, in the fifties; I always wanted to see it again.
The film is old and of poor quality, but extremely recomended for Opera (mainly Verdi's) lovers.
The best of the film are the performances from Mario del Monaco and Tito Gobbi, 2 sacred monsters."
