5.0 out of 5 stars A love story with a difference, 20 Mar 2007
This review is from: Ladyhawke [DVD] [1985] (DVD)
This film has just about everything: great direction by Richard Donner, who also directed The Omen, Superman and Lethal Weapon, beautiful cinematography by Vittorio Storaro and a wonderful cast - Rutger Hauer is perfect as the brave hero, Michelle Pfeiffer is breath-takingly beautiful as Isabeau and Matthew Broderick provides plenty of comic relief. There is a fine music score by Kate Bush's former arranger and producer Andrew Powell and there is romance, action, drama and humour.

This is the type of film which I never get fed up of watching time and time again and I am not ashamed to admit that the ending always brings tears to my eyes. With this DVD version the film can be viewed in its correct widescreen ratio, making the most of the stunning cinematography. This film is often shown on television but usually in a full screen, pan-and-scan version with the closing credits either edited or speeded up thus eliminating much of Andrew Powell's beautiful closing credits music. Therefore it is worth buying this DVD to see this film in it's complete and correct format.
