    Fascinating. I must admit as much as I love Powell and Pressburger, TALES OF HOFFMAN has never worked for me. (Oddly enough it was the first of their films I ever heard of, mostly due to a striking color insert in an encyclopedia in my childhood.) This one though does look intriguing. Not sure how I would manage to see it, unless maybe Criterion might bite. Thanks for the review though… it is always a delight to hear about a movie you’ve never heard of.

    Carosello Napoletano does have some dialogue scenes and more naturalistic playing, which helps it along.
