It's nice to see "FRIENDS" released on DVD. The transfer to disc is excellent and the film looks all the better for it (This version has a 97 mins running time. There may have been a slightly longer version originally screened in cinemas back in 1971). Anicee Alvina and Sean Bury did some wonderful work here and all these years later their performances are still as powerful, and more so, in light of Anicee's passing in 2006, poignant as ever. Recommended further reading for both, "FRIENDS" and the follow up, "PAUL AND MICHELLE" can be found under, "IN SEARCH OF LOST TIME: FRIENDS and PAUL AND MICHELLE", by Scott Murray.
