Even if you have seen this movie in the theatres, I strongly recommend purchasing this DVD as this is a film that should be viewed more than once. The first viewing wraps your attention into the plot- is the Faun good or evil? What will happen to Ophelia and how the fairly tale ends. However, after seeing the film 3 times more, I was surprised at how much more depth can be seen in the characters of the Captain and the Faun that werent evident the first time through. I began to see the Captain as far more vulnerable and human than I originally thought and the Faun more beautiful and haunting. I agree that this is a fantastic movie.
