"One long Ferrari commercial"?

Special vignettes ...

"A beautiful production from Discovery Channel - it might seem like Ferrari picked up the tab, but is that a bad thing? Divided into segments on various aspects of the Italian "mystique", you first get a quick and colorful history of Ferrari, followed by excellent and thoughtful looks at fashion, a Sicilian fishing village with its traditions threatened by modern life, a reknowned photographer in Cortina, and a capsule look at Venice through the eyes of a local. Beautifully filmed overall, with some choice nuggets. I am anxious to show this to many friends who know and love Italy - I'm sure it will please both the sophisticated Italophile and the initiate."

"This DVD goes beyond the everyday travel documentary which this is not. This film takes you into the spirit and the soul of the italian people. It's characters como alive and make you feel this wonderful country. It must seen but everyone who has been or going to Italy for the first time. This is a diferent look of Italy."
I think the other guy missed the point

"Personally speaking I have a deep love for this film and I have watched it many times. Perhaps the other person who offers a review here missed some of the essential elements of Italian culture and style that are permeated through this film. I think that this program offers more than a little insight to the country and the people there, their ways of life and phliosophy of living. I also believe that the the cinematography is stunning and that the DVD is a great value. Even if you remove the Ferrari sections (which do say a lot about the country for those who might get it), this is a great film and should be seen by all who love this great country.I'm happy to pay $15 just to be able to view the Venice scenes over and over. I've never seen another film that comes close to the richness of the photography in "The Italians"."
