This was an amazing movie

I have seen the stageplay in different cities and countries. The movie was a beautiful depiction and, though different in some aspects, gave more visual beauty to some surroundings and sound (horses hoofs on brick, and much more)

Opulent musical triumph will be too slow for younger teens

This musical is dark, and powerful. The scenery, the singing, and the choreography are dazzling and exciting. Parents should know that the Phantom's obsession with Christine is very predatorial, and some scenes are sexual, although non-explicitly. Younger kids may not notice this. There is one very violent and scary scene, but it is brief. Altogether, the film is haunting, and beautiful. Kids under 12 most likely won't understand it.

We loved it.

The music is beautiful. The staging is lush. The casting superb, especially Butler and Rossum.
