Two of Germanys most scenic and historic regions unfold from a spectacular aerial vantage point in the newest title from this popular franchise. Shot in high definition from a helicopter-mounted camera, each tour is enhanced by a poetic and informative narrative and an evocative soundtrack of regional music. Includes Visions of Germany: Bavaria and Visions of Germany: Along the Rhine. Soundtracks feature music by Beethoven, Wagner, and Strauss. Approx 156 min., includes bonus footage not seen on the public television broadcast.
Utilizing aerial shots and a soundtrack that includes folktunes as well as classical masterpieces by Beethoven, Wagner, and Strauss, Visions of Germany is a feast for the eyes and ears. Broken up onto two discs, one 79-minute segment tackles the bucolic sections of Germany along the Rhine, while the other (clocking in at 77 minutes) showcases Bavaria and southeastern Germany. The angles caught by the helicopter-mounted camera are impressive, though at times it would be nice to catch a street-level shot or two to shake things up. From the storybook-esque castles to the pristine gardens that rival any in England or Japan, the imagery in this travel documentary is stunning, lush, and often times breathtaking. Where the set fails is in the narration. While soft and calm, the speaker's voice is so devoid of any sort of expression that viewers may be better served watching the footage with the sound turned off. --Jae-Ha KimSee all Editorial Reviews

Visions of Germany is quite enjoyable.
the intention of reliving and reviewing some of my travels. I much enjoyed
the video where it covered territory covered on our trip, as well as where
it covered other parts of the country. Our trip was on land and along the
Rheine river. This video provided an air view of much of the same locale,
so it gave me another perspective.
