Dracula: Entre l'amour et la mort,
This review is from: Dracula : Entre l'amour et la mort (Version française) (DVD)
This is an amazing dvd. The quality of the music, the commanding performances, both vocally and dramatically, are superior to anything I've seen for a very long time, if ever. I am especially delighted that it is a production entirely québécois. What a marvelous testament to the great talent to be found in "La belle province!" The sets and special effects are very creative as are the new twists on the story.
Although I speak almost no French, the fact that there are no subtitles does not diminish my enjoyment.
Bruno Pelletier's highly original portrayal of Dracula is truly masterful and he achieves the impossible: as vile and cruel as his character may be, he is able to convey his tortured soul and evoke sympathy in the listener. I found "Le Temple de Satan" especially heart-wrenching, as well as one of the most exquisite songs. The entire cast performs admirably and the haunting music by Simon Leclerc is stunningly beautiful. This great musical deserves worldwide exposure!
