Ten short pieces directed by ten different directors, including Ken Russell, Jean-Luc Godard, Robert Altman, Bruce Beresford, and Nicolas Roeg. Each short uses an aria as soundtrack/sound (Vivaldi, Bach, Wagner), and is an interpretation of the particular aria.

  • Highest Rating
    "There are some real gems to discover. The most successful episode, though, is Julien Temple’s cheerfully vulgar interpretation of ‘La donna è mobile’ from Verdi’s Rigoletto, which stars Buck Henry and Anita Morris."
