For Opera Lovers Only

For fans of "Opera", this is an interesting and fairly extensive look at the ideas behind the film and its making. The most interesting comments are from Daria Nicolodi, probably because she is the only one critical of maestro Argento (and is completely right about the "swiss nonsense"). Argento's comments don't fare quite as well, simply because he seems to talk about a better movie than the one he ended up with. He talks extensively about his ideas, many of whom you will probably not get while watching "Opera". A comment on AIDS? I'm not sure about this. Also, his comments are relentlessly downbeat, as he reflects on a particularly depressing time of his life. Actor Urbano Barberini is the one with whose comments you have the most fun, as he obviously prefers the immoral aspects of the story. Not very surprisingly, (though still somewhat of a disappointment) main actress Christina Marsillach is nowhere to be seen, as her relationship with Argento was notoriously bad. Also of interest is the explanation of the fantastic swirling shots during the climax.
