| Fascinating but imperfect
I love opera and Puccini's music, and I like a lot of these actors here, so of course I wanted to see Puccini. I found it fascinating and interesting, but it wasn't perfect by all means. The camera work could have been cleaner and sharper than it was, the pace was rather leaden at times and the production sequence despite the wonderful voices and music was rather amateurish in how it was staged. However, the scenery and costumes are lovely, and the music is gorgeous. The trial sequence was interesting too, the writing was overall good and thoughtful and there is a good cast with the likes Virginia McKenna, Rupert Graves, Peter Woodthorpe and Ronald Pickup in support and Robert Stephens in a larger-than-life and believable lead performance. Overall, imperfect but I found it very interesting. 7/10 Bethany Cox
