5.0 out of 5 stars Better with subtitles, 30 May 2009
I don't know why but the default setting on the DVD release is English Dialogue and No Subtitles. The beginning of the film is a voice over and since the voice is in English you may forget that you are watching a German film until the awful dubbing becomes clear. REMEMBER to set the disk up with German Dialogue and English Subtitles before starting the film... unless you like that sort of thing, and if so I have no sympathy for you!!!!! (Hate dubbed stuff! Prefer a good read any day, hee hee.)

4.0 out of 5 stars Will she or won't she?, 30 May 2009
This tale of a woman planning her suicide and discussing it with her mum was once on telly past midnight when I was a kid, so I taped it (VHS, last century, the good old days) and it fell off the end of the tape (bad old days). It was never on again and never released on DVD until recently so I never knew if she went ahead with it. Finally found out, and now you can too.

There are no extras. Its stage roots are clearly seen. Its a two hander basically and interestingly Kathy Bates was in the stage version but too unknown to be in the film. (I think it was written for her, oh well, she has an Oscar now so no complaining!) A bit bleak but good acting.

The single disc edition has a commentary, deleted scenes, brilliant Webisodes and an interview between Stephen King and Frank Darabont. I love Stephen King interviews in DVD extras, especially when I wasn't expecting them but this one has a bit too much in the way of back slapping and oral gushings - very insightful but a bit cringey. A lot has been said about the story here so I won't go over trodden ground, so how about a couple of observations? May be trodden ground, I haven't read all the reviews. That tree at the beginning - I thought 'Hey, they're ripping off Poltergeist' but then as the film went on I realised it was 'homage' not 'thievery', I wondered what they were doing with… Read more
