5.0 out of 5 stars Hold Out for the Correct Aspect Ratio, 1 Feb. 2006
By A Customer
This review is from: The Snowman/Father Christmas [DVD] (DVD)
I sought out this release because I'd read on Amazon.com that the vocal track of Father Christmas was butchered on the American release. I also know from reading reviews on this site to avoid the more recent "faux widescreen" release.
It turned out to be the right choice.
Both The Snowman and Father Christmas are enchanting. The Snowman is so beautiful and so gentle that I was moved to tears--it was mesmerizing. And although I was a bit puzzled as to why the subject of Father Christmas' GI tract was introduced, it really could've been much worse and the reintroduction of our friends from the previous feature prompted spontaneous applause.
The video quality of both features was stellar, even on my code-free DVD player, and if there was any "PAL speed-up" in evidence, I wasn't aware of it. I don't recall offhand if there were any extras because I immediately loaned the disk to Russian friends; I know their young daughter will enjoy it because of The Snowman's lack of dialogue.
I believe this release is out of print, but it seems to be readily available from third-party sellers, which is how I obtained mine. By all means, make it a part of your Christmas tradition if it isn't already.
