Bowie & Conti star in Bluray Masterpiece.Highly Recommended.
on 28 August 2014
Bluray version of Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence.This moving & at times harrowing film,is a masterpiece of human strength against all odds.Trapped in a Japanese P.O.W camp suffering deprivation & torture.The quality of the transfer to Bluray is AMAZING. Sound is 2 channel DTS HD Master Audio, which most home theatres will convert to an excellent sound through all speakers.Watching this film again after so many years,makes me realise just how good an actor David Bowie is.Tom Conti is almost overshadowed by him. Ryuichi Sakomoto plays the cruel camp commandant.Watch this film.Its a masterpiece.Other reviewers have mentioned about the poor transfer to DVD.Not so with Bluray.Buy the Bluray.Its Stunning photography comes to life on bluray.Highly Recommended.
