One of my all time favorites. Jean Cocteau brought magic to life with this one. Stunningly beautiful film.

It's pretty frustrating that the original soundtrack isn't available. What's the point in having this available, as this is Glass's interpretation.

Such a dissapointment. I did not realize this is the Philip Glass abomination. Such a wonderful film as it was.... Please, make the original available. The calliope and libretto make it unwatchable. Cocteau would be outraged...

Ooh...how do you watch it with the original score? Did you just swap the Philip Glass version out, or are there audio tracks to choose from?
