Good film - deplorable sound!!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Manhattan [DVD]  (DVD)
The film is great but the viewing experience of this DVD was very disappointing.
All through the film the sound kept going up and down, particularly in the final scene, when it was difficult to catch the dialogue even at maximum volume! Fiddling with the remote control rather detracted from the experience.
The potentially marvellous Gershwin soundtrack, too, was let down by the quality of this recording, while the picture resolution is so poor that it made me wonder if I had acquired a pirated version. Hard to believe that this film was only made in 1979.
