Gluck and Slumdog Millionaire

* Notes *
The Opera Tattler was quite caught off guard by the performance of Gluck's Orphée et Eurydice in Slumdog Millionaire. Otherwise, this rather predictable film was nice to look at, like a prettily wrapped present. Good triumphs over evil, love conquers all, but not without the help of both fame and money.

* Tattling *
Someone's beer bottle shattered during the film, this both loud and startling. My companion started laughing during the Gluck, but I suppose that's perfectly appropriate given that I cannot seem to see movies that do not involve opera.
