5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant film, 27 July 2011
This review is from: Song for Martin [DVD] [2001] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
This film touched me in so many ways. It is well acted and directed. I don't do critical reviews of films; all I can say that this was one of the best movies I have seen for a long time. It is well worth owning. Song for Martin [DVD] [2001] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]Song for Martin [DVD] [2001] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]

4.0 out of 5 stars Watch out: Hardcoded subs!, 12 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Song for Martin [DVD] [2001] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
The movie is really good and the audio/video quality is pretty standard DVD quality.
I rated it with 4/5 due to the fact that the subs are hardcoded on the picture and they cannot be disable. I consider this to be a really unprofessional approach to DVD authoring.

4.0 out of 5 stars Moving and worthwhile, if a touch manipulative, 22 July 2011

(TOP 500 REVIEWER)    (REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Song for Martin [DVD] [2001] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
A moving film about two late middle aged people (a composer/conductor
and a first violinist) who find each other, fall madly in love, leave
their marriages, only to have Martin develop Alzheimer's.

The bulk of the film is watching his slow decline, as he slowly
disappears, leaving his lover behind.

Tremendously sad, yet somehow also a little cold, not as emotionally
impactful as I kept wanting it to be.

The acting is terrific, but there's something both a bit clinical, and
a bit manipulative about it. E.g. Martin's attacks too often come at
the (too) perfectly dramatic moments. Also, there's no time spent on
the wrenching decision for each to leave their earlier marriages, so
why include it?

Yet, all that said, it's still a strong, moving experience. A grown up
movie about older people in a world with far too few of both.
