You would be better off investing in the worthy EMI recording that serves as the soundtrack, or the home video of the 1992 Malfitano-Domingo production.
With three excellent principal singers, a youthful and good-looking diva and tenor and richly handsome locations, it's enough to make you wish Jacquot had left well enough alone and just filmed the opera without all these distortions of perspective.
For movie lovers as well as opera lovers, Tosca is a real treat.
From the trembling fury of Gheorgiu's Tosca to the penetrating stare of Raimondi's Scarpia, this Tosca blazes with passion. At its best, it's sublime.
Jacquot's Tosca is a treat.
It is impossible to imagine wanting to see Jacquot's film more than once, if that.
Benoit Jacquot ("School of Flesh") directs this stylistically challenging cinematic rendering of Giacomo Puccini's famous 1899 opera with an appropriately powerful performance by opera diva Angela Gheorgiu.
The performance is curiously cold, surprisingly artificial and removed from the very passion embedded deeply within the score and libretto.
Definitely not a movie for everyone, but should please fans of the classic opera.
If you can read the subtitles (the opera is sung in Italian) and you like 'Masterpiece Theatre' type costumes, you'll enjoy this movie.
Passion, lip-synching, tragedy, and lots of really really high notes. For me, this opera isn't a favorite, so it's a long time before the fat lady sings.
The director sees the strengths of Alagna and Gheorghiu and plays them for every cinematic moment.
