Kenneth Branagh. UK/France. 2006. 133 mins. Cert PG

From the opening credits, Branaghís World War 1 based conception of this enchanting opera bursts over us like a series of brilliantly cinematic fireworks, all visually choreographed to perfection and blending effortlessly with Mozartís endlessly wonderful music. Itís a ravishing blend of fantasy and trench war brutality.

Showing as part of Louth Music Festival, 1-10 July. www.louthmusic.co.uk
