It is worth mentioning that the majority of the documentary is in Finnish with English subtitles. If subtitles bug you, this DVD may not be for you.
With a length of approx 2 hrs (if my memory serves me correctly), it is a DVD I tend to watch over a couple of sittings. With its mixture of interview with Tuomas & Jukka, and footage of recording albums, touring and hanging out, I notice something new each time I watch it.
Note, mainly revolves around Tuomas, Jukka, Marco and some of the roadies. Ie not too much Tarja or Emppu.
The interview with Tuomas shows a man who despite having changed through having a successful band, does not appear to have an ego. Runs through the forming of the band, the circumstances of Sami leaving, and talks about the ease or difficulty of recording each album, and much much more.
Beautiful shots of their home town of Kitee and Tuomas' island.
Lots of funny bits. Eg. Naked bungee jumping (with appropriate bits covered for the DVD), standard drunken tour moments (but doesn't overwhelm the DVD), and more.
The live section of the DVD isn't the greatest. I tend to view it as a bit of a support for the documentary. Basically, I wouldn't buy it for the live performance alone.
Hope this helps!
There is a wealth of additional material on here; the 2 concert performances (5 and 6 songs, respectively), the interview with Toumas for MTV Brasil (in English), photo galleries, etc. Any Nightwish fan should get this.
I picked up the region 0 Limited Edition last year when Nightwish originally released this DVD. If you're a huge Nightwish fan, it's a must buy. Chronicles the history of the band with its ups and downs in an interview with Tuomas and Jukka. Lots of behind the scene footage included. You finally get to see just how much this band parties. Also some very nice footage of the area Tuomas grew up in as that's where the documentary was filmed.
Everything is in Finnish with English subtitles.
As a bonus you also get the End Of All Hope and Over the Hill and Far Away videos. Two seperate live concerts with one in 5.1 sound, and a maze of a photogallery that has a trick in getting to see every photo they include.
The band history (narrated in Finnish if I'm not mistaken) is boring. Would've put one star, but I like Nightwish and hope that their new DVD would be mastered by professionals.
