FRENCH POSTCARDS DVD with Altered Music!
7 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm just watching the new DVD release of French Postcards and I'm sorry to say they have substituted all the music with elevator muzak. This is really a shame in that the original music soundtrack was one of the best things about this film. It was French language versions of pop hits such as "Do You Believe In Magic?" and "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?" that was most memorable. This is still a fine film and I recommend it but I wish they would bring back the original soundtrack. I remember seeing this film on HBO back in the eighties when they ran the same film ten times a day and I would watch it just for the soundtrack. I advise you try to find an old VHS version with the original music. Also Debra Winger's role is so small it's ridiculous they try to promote it as "starring Debra Winger".
