BACIO DI TOSCA (TOSCAS KISS) von Daniel Schmid available again


Il bacio di Tosca



Schmid's preoccupations with opera, theatricality, romanticism, and decay receive perhaps their loveliest, most poignant treatment in this remarkable documentary. The setting is Casa Verdi, a home for retired opera singers and musicians founded by Giuseppe Verdi. Schmid achieves an extraordinary rapport with his subjects, who relive (and often resing) their glorious pasts with a mixture of bittersweet nostalgia and good-natured hamminess. The DVD was out of stock and has been reedited now.
