5 stars This DVD is really great. Although the major movie (the concert movie along with the interview) is not that good, the fact that the old concert film is on it makes it great. In my opinion most of the songs on this movie are better than the album tracks. "Careful with that Axe, Eugene" and "Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun" are my favourite tracks, but all the other tracks are great too. The only track I don't really like is Mademoiselle Nobs, but it's quite funny when you see the dog howling during the song. It's fun for a couple of minutes, it's very good that it is just a short song, when it would be longer it would gonna be boring. It's just a little break in the movie, followed by the monumental "Echoes" (part 2).

The movie is also beautiful because there's not only the band playing, but also the great Italian landscape and the city of Pompei, destroyed by a volcano. The eerie views of the Roman culture fit in very well with the eerie and atmospheric music of Pink Floyd.

This is really a great DVD, when I heard this DVD along with my father, I got into the Pink Floyd from before the Dark Side of the Moon, it was totally new for my and quite disturbing but now I can't live without this kind of music.
