5.0 out of 5 stars Hurray! A Digitally Remastered DVD Version At Last!, 17 Nov 2007

This review is from: A Room With A View (Special Edition) [DVD] (DVD)
Having played my VHS tape of this wonderful film until my VHS player broke, and having followed other customers' advice about the previous, poor DVD editions, I am so glad that I am now able to watch a flawless version of this classic - the picture and sound quality is as crystal clear as is possible for a film produced 22 years ago, making visible the precious details of this meticulous production: the lacey costumes and beautiful sets, the authentic interiors and coiffures, and even minute facial expressions that I had missed so far.
Among the extras are interviews with Simon Callow and Daniel Day-Lewis. The most interesting extra for me was a 1970 BBC tribute to E. M. Forster, featuring footage, photographs and quotations of himself and interviews with some of his friends, critics and contemporaries, including Frank Kermode, Christopher Ishwerwood and George Steiner.
Priceless!

Thank you for commenting the technical quality of this DVD. Like you, I was going to buy this film as a DVD but was scared off by the Amazon customer critics' bad opinion on the quality of the former edition. After having read your review I am definitely going to buy this DVD; the film has long been one of my all-time favourites - maybe The Favourite. Elina H / Turku Finland
