i was horrified to sethat someone gave ths film 1 star based solely on the fact that they thought the manufacturing of the disc was not up to scratch. I have watched this film many times and never had any visual or sound problems. I would suggest to any one that has these problems to return their product as it is obviously faulty.
As for the film it is the most amazing example of first rate acting and the story line is incredible, it is a tear jerker for boys and girls alike. Like a lot of Cage's films you might need to extend your attention span at times. A must see love story and a film not to be missed.
