 Enjoyable, but with caveats December 5, 2013 By Perry C. (Vashon, WA) See All My Reviews "This is the only complete Esmerelda available at the moment. The video (in 4:3) is taken from a (early 1990s?) film which seems to have been shot through a gauzy curtain; unsettling at first, but the eyes adjust. The sound is decent stereo. The characterizations are all well done, although the dancing seems confined to a smaller stage than one would think given it's a filming. Pugni's music is all very pleasant, but not memerable. Recommended, but with the reservations above." Report Abuse
