5.0 out of 5 stars
Unforgettable, 16 Jun. 2004
I saw this film only once, 33 years ago. I have been waiting ever since for a second opportunity – and now at last Shame is becoming available on DVD (in August 2004). Even if, as the previous reviewer warns may be the case, the film is presented in the wrong aspect ratio, I urge you to watch Shame. It is a most haunting, moving and unsettling portrayal of individuals caught up in the inexplicable terrors of the modern world (specifically a civil war in an unnamed country). I have never forgotten this film and doubt that you will either.
