Movie Reviews

High quality
Ing Robert Kaiplinger | Wien | 06/18/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"First of all I have to point out, that this DVD is not region 1 coded!
Expected for a very long time - a video recording of a Harry Belafonte concert. For anybody who likes Harry Belafonte this DVD is a must. It contains fourteen new and nostalgic songs in a new arrangement in a high quality performance.
In addition with an outstanding image quality (although a little bit noisy) this program is a real entertainment. Even the sound is better than I have stated during some live performances.Unfortunately this DVD was not issued in 16:9 format, although part of the cover let us think that."
Simply a Pleasure!

"The consumate performer comes through with outstanding musicians and an updated sound. Some terrific new songs and old favorites. Even my kids enjoy this tape, watching all of the incredible musicians like Richard Bona and dancing along with the upbeat classics like "Matilda" and "Kwela (Listen to the Man)." I saw Harry Belafonte perform last night and he can still belt them out at age 74! Trust me, this is a quality production."
Belafonte with swing and emotion
A. W. van Arend | Krimpen aan den IJssel, Netherlands | 03/01/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This show is a mix of the best of everything: African rhythm, Carribean feel, and beautiful ballads. Unbelievable how Harry, not the youngest, can set a show on stage with such energy and excitement many youngster better be jealous of...
A special compliment to the performance of Richard Bona, who demonstrates his ability to make a big room seem incredibly small by his exciting Cameroun songs. Even if you don't understand the lyrics - and like the most, I don't understand the words - the emotional message is so strong it makes the hair in my neck stand out.... DVD to have, and play over and over again...."
