I had been watching a verson I recorded on VHS tape off TV, the last part recorded in long-play mode, and was so pleased when it finally came out on DVD and I was able to replace the old recording.
I have two criticisms though. First, the volume level is the lowest of any of my 400+ DVD collection. I have quite a decent amplifier driving a small pair of dynamic, detailed but inefficient speakers, and I have to run the amplifier full on, 5 o'clock position (where it is still a little on the quiet side for me), where I normally don't go past the 3 o'clock position. The second criticism is with the picture quality. I play DVDs on a Panasonic DVD player via HDMI cable to a Panasonic Full HD plasma TV, sharpness control set to the softest position. But I find the picture has an 'over-sharpened' appearance giving it a 'gritty' or 'edgy' look, coupled with some panning artifacts in some scenes. I have not seen this in other movies. Could I suggest that this movie is reprocessed? Apart from the visual issues mentioned the picture has good colour and plenty of detail.
Her partner shows her strength here and gets a job and motivates the boys to be part of their 'family' and build the missing house.
The girl from the fast past reveals she had a child when young here and abandoned it and started her life on pillow talk lane and such places. The 2 women try to trace the child but this is a painful past and not concluded. But near the end does show huge growth with the mother of the child and she does take whatever steps she can to find the child through official channels. The outcome is unknown but one can only hope.
A cool story showing family can be who you want it to be and nothing to do with blood. Cool!
