Overview

This film is part of a series that profiles some of the greatest Western artists from the Renaissance through the 20th century. Perhaps no artist is better known than Michelangelo, the visionary Italian painter and sculptor. Born in 1475, Michelangelo was blessed to be alive at a time when patronage flourished. The money he received from the Medici family enabled him to produce many of the works for which he is known today. These include sculptures like David and the Pietà. His masterwork, the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, is beautifully filmed and presented here for the enjoyment of the viewer. ~ Rose of Sharon Winter

Do not walk, RUN from this series. One of the most poorly produced videos on the market - it doesn't deserve to be on the market. Example... The video on Michelangelo opens with footage of the Sistine Ceiling shot BEFORE its restoration in the 80s! How hard would it be to use current footage? To make matters worse, the music used as the score is Beethoven's Pastoral Symphony... Does anyone see the disconnect here??? Finally, the picture is weak, the cuts are haphazard, and the voice over is lackluster, badly cut, full of room noise and annoying breaths. There is no script to speak of - it was as if the narrator opened a World Book encyclopedia and began reading. A second grader could have created a better video. How this one ever made it to market is beyond me. If you want to scare children away from art, or if you just want to waste an afternoon on white noise burlesquing as art, you might put this on your list. If you're looking for something worthwhile, go anyplace - anyplace else.

I was planing on using this for a high school students, but the monotone voice of the presenter, the bland presentation, and the poor quality of the photo's had me about ready to sleep. The A&E Biography series is so much better. The only positive things i can say is that all of his works are represented, and detail information about each is given.
