For those who don't speak french
le 3 février 2002
If you've recently enjoyed a tasty morsel in the form of Mylène's duet with Seal and are wondering what else she's done, then I can only envy you. France's most significant contribution to pop music has an impressive body of work to her credit : enough to provide months of feasting for even the most demanding consumer.
All Mylène's product is of the highest quality and this DVD is certainly no exception. The music itself ranges from hard rock to soft techno and from new age to traditional french song form. The sound quality is excellent (although lacking 5.1) and perfectly mixed so that Mylène's deliciously sweet and enchanting vocals are always to the fore. The dynamics of the music often create a trance-like intensity and like all the best music it can be appreciated again and again. Mylène's ability to focus and project herself make her a peerless performer.
My favourites here are Vertige, an eye-opening start to the proceedings where there are artful editing touches; Libertine sedentary and seductive; Laisse le vent emporter tout - delicate, fragile and moving.
Whilst the overall production is not as spectacular as Mylenium Tour, this concert has a more initmate and emotional feel. It's a pity there is no choice of viewing angle, because there are too many shots of the audience - this certainly captures the atmosphere, but does detract from actually viewing the performance.
So do you need to understand french ? Definitely not, although the lyrics are as enigmatic and fascinating as the lady herself. They are usually described as dark, but more important is the actual sound of the words, their exquisite enunciation and their perfect fit to the music.
And for those who can read french the Amazon review is fair. I would question the motives of some other contributors.
