5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Brilliant May 8 2002
By James K
Format:VHS Tape
Sister Wendy offers the lucky viewer brilliant and moving insight into some of the greatest works of art in the world. Her in-depth analysis and understanding of the artists' motivations as they created their masterpieces takes you on a journey though time at some of the best museums in Europe. As you enter the world and the minds of these artists, you may actually understand more about your own life and its meaning - Hyperbole? possibly, but Sister Wendy is a philosopher with a heart. Pay close attention to her commentaries on the Pieta by Michelangelo and Apollo and Daphne by Bernini to see the universal desire for love and acceptance expressed through art.

5.0 out of 5 stars I do recommend Sister Wendy; the video is way too short though March 6 2007

EDITED:
I really liked what I saw; Sr. Wendy's commentary is great: insightful, very scholarly and I like her.

But I was just getting warmed by her passion for the masters and BOOM! It's over and done in 10 minutes. 10 minutes for $1.99?

1.0 out of 5 stars DO NOT RENT THIS. IT IS A COMPLETE RIPOFF Jan. 21 2009
By George Delgado - Published on Amazon.com
Amazon is ripping off consumers renting this 10 minute "filler" as a full eposode. Shame on Amazon for not offering at least 30 minutes for a rental fee of $1.99. I couldn't believe it was over almost before it had even started. BOO!!! HISS! BAD AMAZON!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Nothing There March 17 2013
By Robert Fishko - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This is like an abbreviated introduction to something that is elsewhere. It ends abruptly after saying nothing. The first episode, supposedly about Florence, is a toptal of eight minutes long.

1.0 out of 5 stars only 3 minutes Jan. 4 2013
By Samson - Published on Amazon.com

Buyer Beware: You pay for a 3 minute short video that ends before you settle in to watch. Not worth it.
