Product Description

Colin Farrell, Russell Crowe and Jessica Brown Findlay star in this romantic drama adapted from the 1983 novel by Mark Helprin. Set in Manhattan in 1916, the film follows thief Peter Lake (Farrell) who meets Beverly Penn (Brown Findlay), a young woman he is about to rob. Instead, he begins to talk to her and they soon fall in love but he later discovers that she is terminally ill. Meanwhile, Peter is being pursued by his old boss, ruthless gangster Pearly Soames (Crowe), to whom he owes a debt, but he is saved by a white horse and finds himself transported into the future. Suffering from amnesia, Peter encounters Virginia Gamely (Jennifer Connelly) who helps him to recall his past and, driven by his love for Beverly, he tries to find a way to bring her back to life.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful film, you don't want to miss it! 6 Mar 2014
Format:Blu-ray
Winter's Tale - a truly magical, uplifting, emotional piece of art.

The directing is wonderfully done accompanied with a musical score which makes it special and really shine all throughout the movie.

Script is full of metaphors, symbolism with huge amount of detail and depth in it, thought-provoking ideas, it is beautiful and unique, which is quite rare in films nowdays.

There is plenty to see for the mainstream audience, as well as people who have different perspective, so it works on both levels, which really surprised me.

The acting is a strong part and everyone did a great job to portray interesting and multi-layered characters, especially the chemistry between Colin Farrell and Jessica Brown-Findlay was wonderful to watch, and they fit the roles very well.

Cinematography is also a very important part of the movie, the film visually looks amazing and it helped to create a believable New York, with all of the different settings and themes - major and small.

There are some issues here and there, but it is a 'Tale' and i think this motion picture represents the title perfectly.

The only real problem is the marketing - trailer, while it is really good, in my opinion, it barely represents the actual movie - posters, they look really cheap and similar to every romance film, therefore people might have been mistaken and not wanting to see this movie in theaters, although i can see now that the cover of Blu-Ray looks great. So, don't judge a product by it's marketing.

Overall, i loved the film, every second of it. Can't wait to see it again! A must own on Blu-Ray/DVD!

Blu-Ray review (US version):

Winter's Tale on Blu-Ray looks exceptionally well.

5.0 out of 5 stars 'CAN 'PETER' FULFILL HIS DESTINY?' 29 Aug 2014
By rbmusicman TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
Like many films this has received mixed press and indeed reviews, the film cost around $60 million to make,
and failed at the Box-Office, does that make it a 'avoid at all costs movie' in this case i suggest, not.
This is a delightful and magical tale set in mystical 'New York' at the turn of the 20th century.
Burglar and Mechanic 'Peter Lake' (Colin Farrell) who is being hunted down by the man who had brought the
orphan up 'Pearly Soames' (Russell Crowe) and his associates, does by a twist of fate during a burglary at a
fortress-style mansion meets 'Beverly Penn' (Jessica Brown Findlay) romance blossoms between them instantly.
'Peter' falls hopelessly in love with 'Beverly' though she has but months to live, the threat possed by 'Pearly' hangs over 'Peter'
'Peter' has been told there is one miracle to be had for everyone, if but once, he craves to stop time and bring
'Beverly' back from the clutches of death itself.
Many years will pass before 'Peter' has the chance to fulfill both his purpose and indeed destiny, that being if
the old enemy 'Pearly' doesn't achieve what he'd failed to do so many years before.
This is a very good and very watchable film, a little happy and a little sad, the very presence of a host of well
known stars should give a hint of it's quality, ignore the critics.
Among the names on-board 'William Hurt' as 'Beverly's father 'Isaac' 'Jennifer Connelly' plays 'Virginia Gamely'
'Mckayla Twiggs' as young 'Willa' 'Eve Marie Saint' as the older 'Willia' and 'Will Smith' in a cameo role as
'Lucifer' a few among many.
Give it a whirl....

5.0 out of 5 stars A sublime film which took me to another world 18 Mar 2014
By NLB
Format:DVD
I watched this alone in the cinema and was so very engrossed I was stunned when the lights came up! Like Stardust, you need to believe in magic and be able suspend reality to enjoy this but if you do, you'll be struck by the beauty and wonder of the eternal themes of love, goodness, trials and hope which it takes you through.

The critics hate it, and seemingly everyone else who has forgotten the wonders of magic. But, if you are amongst the brave not scared of your emotions and daring to believe there is indeed "more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy" Hamlet... even miracles that transform life then you will be touched and moved by this film. The Hans Zimmer is haunting and entirely appropriate. If there was an option to give it 6 stars I would!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Cried most of the way through, really enjoyed 24 Feb 2014
Format:DVD
I genuinely loved this film, enough to buy the book which i'm looking forward to reading. It is difficult to transfer magic realism (and effects like the flying horse) from page to film without weakening the material but the love story was moving and intense and the magical side wasn't too overpowering as is oven the case.

Movies in this genre are hard to capture on film, but if you can suspend your disbelief and take off your critic's hat, you might enjoy it. I certainly did.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth watching 28 Aug 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Loved it. The film transports you to another world. Colin Farrell is great, as is Russell Crowe. I just can't see why critics hated it.
