    Default Rusalka film

    I've been searching in vain for quite some time for a copy of a 1977 of Dvorak's Rusalka sttarring Gabriela Benackova and directed by Peter Weigl. The parts of it that are available on YouTube are beautiful and I'd love a chance to watch the whole thing. If anyone knows where it's available or has any ideas, I'd be very grateful. Here's a clip from the film:

    As a matter of fact I can help you with that.
    he made several films http://www.petrweigl.cz/
    After long searching I found this site and ask him a few questions.
    Most of his work is in some strange way "out of his hands" .
    It mean they are struggling to get a deal about rights (money that is)
    And as most of the pictures made for television broadcast, it's not sure when if ever, the films will comes out .

    Wow! The tenor is outstanding! The whole thing has a pre-Raphaelite look to it.
