Fair to learn the plot but very poor quality audio and video
14 February 2006 | by jsmith1066See all my reviews

Netflix offers this movie on DVD, dubbed with English dialog. There are a few arias in Italian thrown in, but the quartet is done with only the Duke's opening lines. The video quality is poor and was evidently done from scratched film - there are a lot of flecks and artifacts in each frame. The audio is pretty poor and the actors ability to lip sync the singing is almost non-existent. It does have Caruso singing three arias in the extras and that was better quality than the movie arias. Since this is a movie rendition not a stage production, the scenes and story are enjoyable to watch and easy to follow, especially since it is dubbed in English.
