The glorious floating singing of Ms Fernandez melted my heart- my first experience of being able to love an operatic voice- make the whole film worth it.

This is one of my all time favourite films. I'd always suspected that Paris held a gritty underground just beneath the feet of the tourist culture, and this film shines a light on it. The combination of luscious Paris exteriors, an unexpected opera buff,. the haunting voice of Wilhelmenia Fernandez, the juxtaposition of the sweet and the ugly all make this film a real winner, and better yet, one that stands up to the test of time.

I tried to like this one but it was too boring to hold my interest.

Possibly the first foreign film I liked and saw more than once. Opera is not my thing, but I can appreciate the music!

Love story and odd characters I think caught my interest and later in life made me want to own it.

The listing of the performers omits the leading actress, Wilhelmenia Wiggins Fernandez

This makes it more difficult to locate this film.

This is a real find. Opera + Detective.

creative and good chasing scenes.

Must see !

Even the interview of director (unlike other) is very worth watching.

Paris, opera, the hoods, the good guys, fan adoration, love's gracious gift. Beineix keeps you guessing in this great thriller.
