Wonderful film, rip-off foreign product.
on May 14, 2017
This movie is a true classic with fine performances from everyone involved, but especially from Deborah Kerr, who manages to break the heart without speaking a word in one of my all-time favorite scenes from any film. It's a good adaptation of the book and manages to remain faithful to the source material, plus it has an excellent theme song. Additionally, the film quality is excellent -- the transfer is crisp and clear. Black and white scenes don't look degraded in any way, and the full color scenes are so lush, you could practically step through your television screen. So the only reason I've given it 4 stars is that this DVD is some kind of Korean product and not a real American product. That isn't what I expected when I bought it, but seems to be all that's available for some reason. As such, it has no extra features or any of the things I'd expect from a real American studio release. If I wanted cheap Korean crap I'd go buy it on the streets of Seoul from some guy selling DVDs out of the back of a truck, not pay full price on Amazon. These types of products should not be available here.
