Boheme, Two Ways

Glimpses at two very different cinematic takes on La Boheme.....

This first one, due for US release this month, has a traditional look and a starry cast (Anna Netrebko and Rolando Villazon).

Meanwhile, director Werner Herzog contrasts Puccini's music with images of Ethiopia and the Mursi people.
