So why four stars? Because even translated into subtitles, the emotion and poetry present in Rene Lavand's performance will make you rethink your magic. His presentations are unbelievably strong, making references to poetry and literature from around the world and using the magic he presents to accent the stories he tells.
in "Strong Magic", Darwin Ortiz repeatedly praises Lavand's style and performance, and after reading that book I was determined to make a study of the way that he performs. Even if you never do a single trick on these DVDs, the opportunity to watch his performance and to listen to his interview is worth the price of admission.
