I bought this on a friends recommendation and like one of the other reviewers, cannot stop watching it! The ending is so poignant, it gives me a lump in my throat everytime. Watching the friendship between Gibson and Lee develop amidst beautiful photography is a joy. One thing I would add. The film was made in 1981 and so I was unsure how well the quality would look on dvd. In fact it is crystal clear, certainly as good a quality as any modernday film might look. The film is well acted and I do wonder why Mark Lee isn't a bigger star than he is. For the very low price I paid for this film, well worth buying and a very worthy addition to anyones collection.
