Movie Reviews

This DVD is a masterpiece!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I was quite moved by this DVD. Catholics and Art lovers will love the wonderful camera work that shows the exceptional artwork that many viewers would not otherwise see. While watching the DVD, I felt like I was at the Vatican itself! The 2 1/2 hour DVD is packed with wonderful footage. I highly recommend it!"
No English subtitles

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I enjoyed this production immensively. It is a rich cultural treasury of great art. It has an Italian audio track as well as an English audio track. I would enjoy very much listening to the Italian audio track while looking at the English subtitles if there were any. I find this to be a minor but unfortunate defect in an otherwise excellent DVD."
Waste of Money!

"From the meager info provided by this website regarding this Vatican Library documentary, I decided to take a chance and purchase it, with the hope of using some of the images to visually enhance some of my art history lectures. (college classes)
What a disappointment! This tape is far from an informative documentary. Rather than specific focus on individual artists, craftsmen, and their work, this is a sentimental overview of the "glories" of the various popes, complete with backround music of heavenly choirs. A Waste of time and money!"
