Giacomo Puccini s immortal opera in a high budget feature-film version directed by Academy Award nominee Robert Dornhelm, stars operas Golden Couple, Rolando Villazón and Anna Netrebko as the protagonists, Rodolfo and Mimi. The chemistry between them is electric, unrivalled in the theatre today. Russian soprano Anna Netrebko is not only beautiful but has a marvelous voice and technique; Mexican tenor Rolando Villazón, has a wonderful voice and an incredible charisma. The excellent bonus features include fascinating interviews with all the key performers and the director, who confirms that he not only wanted to remain steadfastly faithful to Puccinis design but also document two of the leading singers of the modern age rather than embarking on a "trendy" contemporary recreation.
