'Mr. Turner', and this one make use of what has been described as 'heritage culture'. Whereas 'Mr. Turner' is focused on an individual artist within his culture, this goes into collaborative work, even very pointedly extending to contributions from cast and crew. For all of the obvious craft on display, the focus, such as it is, is on the day to day progress of getting 'The Mikado' on stage. It seems to me the possible interest here is at the edges, left hanging. On the other hand, we get a good picture of how men manage to get together to do something in that era, from someone who get things done in this one. There's even a beggar in the works.

Beautiful production values. The singing actors are all very good. Rather long (3 hrs). Sort of bowls you over the first time you see it. Gets better with each successive viewing. I am in love with this film.

Delightful, colorful and so well acted. Check out Shirley Henderson and Kevin McKidd among so many others.

Gorgeous set design, gorgeous costumes, gorgeous and hilarious script, gorgeous and hilarious acting, gorgeous sound, and if you are a G & S fan you will be absolutely in your glory!!

Masterful film-making. A soothing tonic in an era of copious ADHD-exploiting movie dreck.

Watched the Guardians of the Galaxy. Topsy-Turvy was a welcome cleanser after the noise and worthless spectacle of GoG. Mike Leigh is an under appreciated director. His movies show real people acting like real people!

We could not get the English subtitles to stop!! The film is in English!! Most annoying ... we finally gave up.

A lovely film, with generous excerpts from Mikado and some from Princess Ida and Ruddigore. Rehearsal details mostly believable and performances uniformly superb. Highly recommended for the theater buff and poetry lover.
