Benoît Jacquot verfilmte keine Bühnen-Tosca, sondern inszenierte die Oper für das Kino. Eine gewagte Idee, ein spannendes Unterfangen, denn er liebt seine Schauspieler, er liebt die Graßaufnahme und er hat hier - wie in vielen anderen seiner Filme vorher - eine sehr eigene Handschrift entwickelt. Tosca, das ist der Inbegriff der italienischen Oper. Es geht um Sehnsucht, Leidenschaft und Mord. Um das Feuer einer Frau und um zwei Männer, die es schüren: Der eine Engel, der andere ein Dämon. Mit dem "Opern-Traumpaar" unserer Tage, dem Ehepaar Angela Gheorghiu und Roberto Alagna in den beiden Hauptpartien der Tosca und das Cavaradossi, sowie mit Ruggero Raimondi als Scarpia, hatte Jacqut natürlich drei Weltklasse-Sänger zur Verfügung, die darüber hinaus über hervorragende schauspielerische Fähigkeiten verfügen. Das erlaubt dem Regisseur, Großaufnahmen der Sänger zu filmen: Es ist bemerkenswert, daß er die frei Protagonisten in aller Ruhe und Schlichtheit ihre Arien singen und gestaltten läßt ohne den musikalischen Fluß durch filmische 'Mätzchen' zu stören.

As the fairies are happily granting gifts of beauty, generosity, grace, song and temperament, they are suddenly interrupted by the sudden presence of the evil fairy Carabosse, who is furious at the King's failure to invite her to the ceremony. With spite and rage, Carabosse declares her curse on Princess Aurora: she will one day prick her finger and die. The Lilac Fairy, fortunately, has not granted her gift to the Princess. She acknowledges that Carabosse's power is immense and she cannot completely reverse the curse.
