After waiting YEARS for Tamarind Seed to come out in the US I finally ordered this Korean import. Amazon I am happy with my DVD. It plays beautifully on my Blue Ray DVD player and the subtitles which can also be shown in English can either be turned on or off. It is in wide screen format. Now if you would just give us A Town Like Alice with Bryan Brown I would be a happy woman.

Intriging love story with espionage thrills under a cloud of suspicion. Superb casting: Sharif and Andrews, perfect in their roles. One of the very rare occasions in which a screen couple really capture feelings and doubts of a risky relationship.
Balanced and atmospheric music score by John Barry.

The the combination of Julie Andrews an Omar Sharif is just wonderful I had seen and own this movie previously not in DVD and wanted to make sure I would always be able to see it.
The story is great and I think that you should carry more of Omar sharif movies as I am a very fond of this actor and his work.
Please add more DVD like this one to your selection, The Harem,Mayerling (Omar Sharif and Catherine Deneuve) Peter the Great.
I have looked for them and the Tamarin seed for a long time and was thrilled to finaly find it.

Ever since watching The Tamarind Seed in the theater, I've wanted a copy to keep. Unfortunately, whenever it played on TV, they cut the most-beautiful scene of them walking along the Atlantic side of the island. Since my husband is a native of Barbados, we know that beach well, and can vouch for the truly breathtaking sea, surf, and rocks! The story is a wonderful thriller/mystery; and all the way to the end, it will keep you guessing. This DVD is perfect--and complete.

THE TAMARIND SEED is among my favorite films, and I have been looking for a proper widescreen edition. This Korean disc, is non-anamorphic (so on HD televisions, the film plays as an oblong in the middle of your screen). You can zoom the image, to fill the width of your television, but you get some loss of clarity. Also, while the disc is encoded as region-free NTSC, the audio is pitched too high, so I suspect the source is from a PAL edition of the film. However, even zoomed, the image is fairly good, and colors are well saturated. If it contained the proper audio, I could be happy with this disc. Unfortunately, the definitive home edition is yet to be released.

As far as I am concern The Tamarind Seed is one of the most romantic movies that I had seen in a long time. I had it in VHS and was thrill when I was able to get it in DVD. I searched for it about 20 years, finally, I found it on Amazon..

The Tamarind Seed is a movie one remembers forever! I was delighted to be able to buy it on DVD. Julie Andrews is wonderful, as usual, and the underlying suspense makes the love story, in its beautiful setting, exciting and memorable.
