It’s not every day that the opportunity arrives to see Patricia Hearst (a.k.a. Kane), Hernando Cortez, Juliet, Adam, Jesus Christ and a team of football players cavorting under one roof to the music of Anton Dvorak, Edvard Grieg, Antonio Vivaldi, Richard Wagner and Giaccomo Puccini, among others. This movie mixes religion, politics, Mexican history and opera. At its simplest, it deals with the search for a woman to bear a new Messiah, undertaken by a small, football-helmeted boy, Pafnucio, at the behest of a sinister-looking, black-caped heavenly emissary who has borne witness—we see—to the flight from Paradise, cross burnings by the Ku Klux Klan, the march of Jewish children into Nazi death camps and the crucifixion of Jesus.

Ratings explained:

All films are rated for audio and video these can be found in the specifications in product descriptions.

Everyone rates in different ways and what maybe an 8 to me might be a 6 or 9 to you so please bear in mind that they are there as a rough guide only.

A rating of 8.5 will normally be direct from a VHS master or equivalent

9 upwards will be from good quality TV broadcasts, screeners etc.

8 and below will be from 2nd  or even 3rd generation prints from all types of master.

Fullscreen & widescreen titles are marked with  a W or F or some 16:9 or 4:3

Widescreen can mean anything from a slight scope to 16:9 anamorphic. We try and mention this in descriptions when we can.

Every title on the site is region free so no matter where in the world you live you should have no problems playing any of our discs. Your only requirement is a DVD player capable of receiving a PAL and NTSC signal, about 99% of European players have this facility, the rest of the world check the net for compatible players.
