"In this film ... the aim is to contrast two seemingly opposing art forms and to fuse the two into a new form of artistic expression. ... Weigl takes the words of Friedrich Schiller's stage play and ... the lyrics and music of Gaetano Donizetti's operatic work to retell this famous story."--Container.
