is this out on dvd?
i think i saw part of this years ago in an art history classshare
Yes, in Japan.
It's out on VHS in the UK.
In the Netherlands you can buy it on DVD through bol.com. I just got it. It is the Italian version though. So that means original voices with italian subtitles which you can't turn off. Still I think it was worth buying it.share
It is also available on DVD in Germany. I purchased a copy while in Berlin a few weeks ago. Film is in English with optional German subtitles.share
It will also be released in the UK at the end of January, 2007.share
Yeah, I got the German dvd also. F_cking expensive, but I have to say the picture quality for this dvd is amazing, the picture is so clear and the colors so sharp it is almost 3 dimensional. Just search ebay Germany, you will find this.share
No idea what you paid, but I purchased my copy for a mere €22.90. Not expensive at all and, as you state, well worth it.share
I purchased a copy from http://www.moviemail-online.co.uk/. Since I am in the states that meant I also had to purchase a region free DVD player. Which comes in handy since most of Nigel Terry's movies are from the UK.
I thought Caravaggio was great. Seeing Nigel's performance in this and some other movies I am wondering why he wasn't a bigger star? I think he is very talented.
Thanks for the lead, Aeschylus. I just love this beautifully crafted film. Both Sean Bean and Dex Fletcher were so excellent, but then again they're equipped with the whole package, something that seems to elude virtually all American actors, but comes so naturally to the Brits with their incredible thespian traditions (as well as so many other Europeans). You're very kind to share that information. Oh, and I'll give your regards to Sophocles when I see him. He's still envious of your Oresteia. And only Aeschylus could predict the troubles that the Iranians would germinate to cause such havoc in generations yet to come? When will the villainy of the Persians finally draw to an end, when it's too late?
Have you any other favourite European films concerning great classical painters? I wish they'd do a decent biopic on Jacques-Louis David's life. His relationship to Napoleon is far more interesting to me than that of Beethoven. Keep up your nice posts.
