due innamorati dal destino avverso, insieme ad un piccolo gruppo di amici e musicisti, vengono coinvolti dai movimenti emergenti della controcultura che contestano la guerra, con il dr. robert (bono) e mr. kite (eddie izzard) che fanno loro da guida. forze al di fuori dal loro controllo, pero', alla fine dividono i giovani innamorati, obbligando jude e lucy, contro tutte le possibilita', a cercare la strada che permetta loro di ricongiungersi.

A musical is a cinematic form which is an acquired taste for some. However, if you allow yourself to suspend belief for a couple of hours and let this film wash over you like a warm wave then you will emerge uplifted and joyous through the experience.
Without wishing to offer a blow by blow account of the film, suffice it to say that visually the film is glorious,the tale is told with wit and ingenuity and the music is of course sublime.
A beautiful way to spend an evening....enjoy !

I was initially put off by the "Mills and Boon" style dvd front cover and the potentially naff idea of creating a romantic narrative through press-ganging songs into use when they have such significance in their own right. But the film reveals successive delights. The director is truly inspired and her film is terrific visually, emotionally and musically.

Format: DVD
Across The Universe is a love story set in the late 1960's which follows Jude and Lucy as they experience some of the key events of this time, set to the music of the Beatles. This is a double-edged sword as it can alienate the kind of fan who believes that the original version is the definitive version. Someone actually said 'why mess with perfection' when slating this film to me. Another flaw/strength is how visually rich and experimental it is, this makes it stunningly beautiful to watch, but can be too 'trippy' for some viewers. This film is highly reccommended to everyone but I would advise watching it twice, especially those who didn't enjoy it first time around, as it may just surprise you.

Me and my girlfriend watched this film not long ago, and to be honest I wasn't keen because I'm not a fan of the beatles! However after watching this film I wasn't swayed into being a fan but I very quickly agreed with my girlfriend buying the soundtrack with a amazon voucher. Purely because the DVD wasn't out at the time. I'll be honest I still don't owe this film but I will make a purchase straight after writing this review. This is one of the few films which would be well worth a £19.99 price label the story and songs work incredibly well its almost scary! This film is nothing short of a Masterpiece and deserves to be sat on everybodies DVD shelf!

Format: DVD
The movie works on every level-you have the perfect excuse for the main character to uproot to the States,you have the dream sequences and above all you have the songs.
Jim Sturgess is heard at the beginning singing an unaccompanied Girl-and sounds just like David Essex!
Comparable Beatles inspired movies to this one would be Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band,Give my regards to Broadway and All this & World War 2 so its not a new idea to use Beatles songs and characters.
Joe Cocker has long had a connection with the Beatles-in 1964 his first single was the Sun styled version of I'll cry instead then 4 years later his radical remake of With a little help from my friends.A year later he was the first to record the Harrison song Something.
Here he sings Come together as he saves a guy from being run over in the street and looks for all the World like a beggar looking for a handout!
Only downer in this film is the ridiculous and unfunny Eddie Izzard.
Its manna from Heaven for those who like me go for Beatles covers-the CD has many more left out of the movie.
However without the Beatles music its something of a non story which struggles to make sense
The 2nd disc with the DVD is about the making of the movie

Format: Blu-ray
Apart from being an interesting movie for a Beatles fan, this Blu-Ray disc deserves two thumbs up for its technical side. I own a lot of Blu-Rays and I have watched a lot more, and when it comes to picture quality, this disc is nothing short of flawless. This might be the best HDTV presentation I have seen so far, even if I compare it with the superbly presented Baraka. The picture looks absolutely crisp, very detailed and it shows very strong colors too. There is a mild amount of grain visible, but it has not been implemented artificially and it only adds to the overall analogue feel of the picture. Furthermore, it is very constant throughout the movie, even in dark scenes.
The image lacks anything that even remotely looks like digital enhancement, there is no edge enhancement or noise reduction visible in any scene, no digital artifacts can be seen even in critical images, e.g. when we see Jude sitting on the beach surrounded by countless flying shreds of paper, or in some of the underwater scenes. There, even the tiniest air bubbles can be made out without any digital noise diminishing the general impression of brilliance that comes with the general look of the film.
Flowers, blades of grass, costumes, the stubble on the guys' faces, everything is shown in the best possible amount of detail 1080p has to offer.
The sound is presented in Dolby True HD 6.1, and it is as good as the picture. The master volume is a little low, but the dynamics and the clarity especially in those scenes that contain music are as pristine as the image. Those of you who don't like modern wall of sound production should definitely give this a try, as well as anyone who is looking for a disc to check the capabilities of a TV set with. Absolutely stunning and highly recommended!
