“ArtHaus's carefully restored film… based on the Hamburg State Opera's premier production. Imaginatively shot, it captures the fevered atmosphere of the little town, caught in the crossfire of national politics and petty jealousies. Troyanos's wide-eyed Jeanne... is suitably unhinged but Hiolski is the star of the show as the vain, lustful Grandier. ...accompanied splendidly by the Hamburg State Opera Orchestra under Marek Janowski, this is a fine record of a graphic, disturbing and deeply moving production.”
