5.0 out of 5 stars Why isn't this on DVD! July 8, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
I just adore this movie. Great acting, sweet story, lots of culture and absolutely fabulous music... I listen to the soundtrack all the time.
Barbara Streisand is perfect at playing an intelligent, yet vulnerable woman in a time and place in which women were supposed to be illiterate and considered to be silly. Her father was a more forward-thinking man in a culture that considered teaching a woman to read something perverse and criminal. When her father dies,she loses everything... women can't read, own property or make decisions concerning the course of her life.
She decides that her persuit of knowledge of the holy scriptures is too important to let the opportunity slip through her fingers, so she cuts her hair and lives life as a male Rabbinical student. Life takes a twist she doesn't expect when she falls for her classmate and subsequently is forced to marry a young girl.
There are a lot of laughing-out-loud moments, but this is mostly just an extremely sweet story of love, sacrifice, tradition and freedom. It's definitely a feel-good movie that will put a lump in your throat. I highly recommend this film.

4.0 out of 5 stars I'm ALL FERKLEMPT! October 9, 2003
Format:VHS Tape
As an impressionable young guy from Sydney, who was into his "Streisand" phase, I won two tickets to see the premier of Barbra's film "Yentl". My brother picked myself and my date up in a limousine and drove us right to the red velvet carpet of the Sydney Cinema where we witnessed this cinematic miracle.
Yentl on the big screen was a joy to behold, and quite touching in it's controversial story. For years, I have patiently waited to see this classic once again in widescreen and stereo, but alas, we have never seen this on DVD. Barbra's film is a tour de force of song and story and cinematic excellence, the true ultimate movie going experience.
Set in the turn of the century Europe when the world of study belonged only to men, a young Jewish woman disguises herself as a man in order to learn more of the world around her, and finds the most powerful of lessons, love.
Please, whoever is releasing titles in DVD, PLEASE put Yentl into production, and find the marvelous documentary of it's making, and include it on the end, I still have this on Video
and treaure it. Barbra wandering around with a small movie camera finding just the right locations is priceless, her interview on Australian 60 minutes about editing the film is also worthy of inclusion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Huge gift for fans February 5, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Finally!! YENTL is on dvd! For all us Barbra fans YENTL was an amazing tour de force without comparison and as years have gone by it seemed as if Barbra had forgotten us and that it would never be released on dvd. Well, the wait was definitely worth it for it is presented here as an exquisite 2-disc Director's Cut which far surpasses any expectations I had.

First, we get a brief intro of Barbra today talking about the film. Then there is YENTL. The video presentation is so crisp and clear it is as if it was filmed today. It shows no age whatsoever. And the music. This glorious soundtrack contains some of Bartbra's best work beginning with PAPA CAN YOU HEAR ME. All music is glorious and all your surround speakers will be put to excellent use. The audio is strong even when there is no music. Dialogue is strong and background surround sound is plentiful.

We all know that YENTL was a cherished experience of love for Barbra and here she shares that joy with us. We get the original theatrical version of the film, an extended director's cut with added footage from Barbra's archives and a splendid commentary track. I usually don't listen to these. But here Barbra explains all that was behind each scene of the movie for her. It is amazing to see how she made her decisions and what the experience was like. To see the steps she took to make her dream come true is very informative. And it does not end here. The second disc has added features aplenty. There are featurettes. We see Barbra filming while she is acting and directing at the same time. We see home movies she took during the filming. And we see some songs that didn't make the cut of the final film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yentl FINALLY On DVD on TWO DISC!!! January 16, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is actually one of The Few Times that I am Happy To Pay A HIGHER PRICE for an Item! I had pre ordered the One Disc DVD when it was announced on Amazon at a price of $8.99. I ordered it but was Disappointed that it seemed to be skimpy on the extras But I will take this DVD any way I can. I was Pleasantly Surprised when I was informed by Amazon that the one disc was being discontinued and that I would have too order the Two Disc Directors Cut, Didnt have to twist my arm on that one! I am more than Happy to shell out a few more dollars for an extra disc that will be loaded with Extras! This Movie Deserves the Full Treatment! Yentl is The GREATEST of ALL Barbra Streisand Films and is by far her Most Personal Film! I respect Barbra's Professionalism and Integrity in Making Sure that This Movie Received the Proper Treatment for a DVD Release and I know it will have been worth the wait! To Me, The Ending of The Film when Yentl is on that Ship and Singing "A Piece of Sky" is one of the greatest scenes in Cinema History, Gives me Goose Bumps everytime I see it. HERE IS A RUNDOWN OF THE DVD FEATURES: Yentl Director's Extended Edition.

Bonus Features:
Disc 1:
**Theatrical Cut (Widescreen Feature)
**Director's Extended Cut (Widescreen Feature) with added scenes from Barbra's Archives

**In 1983, I was told the film had to be no more than two hours long. I was grateful when the studio allowed me to have another fourteen minutes. But it would have been nice tohave these additional scenes included. So here they are.

Yentl on DVD
If Yentl is available in Europe on DVD, why not here in the USA? Last I knew, Streisand and her cast and crew are all Americans so why not have it here. It's quite a tease to know it's available but we don't have the European format necessary for the only available DVDs. If Streisand isn't... Read More

Yentl DVD
I also received a defective dvd. It came from Italy--was in a foreign language and would not play. It was not new--it was scratched and the cover flattened.
