BRAVO MOZART!

I watched this a while back and had another spin this weekend.

I was mesmerized by this in cinemas, and as much as I like the Director's Cut, which are usually an improvement, in this case (with one or two exceptions), the experience is actually diluted IMHO. So BRAVO for going to the effort of assembling this.

This is a seamless piece of work, and unless you know what you are looking for, unnoticeable. No deductions for the opening caption (which is near perfect) since there is little one can do to eliminate registration flicker of the source material (I know, I recently had the same issue on one of my edits).

There is mastery to the flow and pacing of the theatrical cut which (apart from the DVD release) would have been lost were it not for this edit. Superb audio, and great fram for frame matching all round.

I do like the Directors Cut, but if you are going to get a family member through this, you have to Theatrical.

Thank you for this gift.
