Can anyone tell me why the episode with Ron Perlman in this movie was cut? And is the cut portion available to buy? I am a big Ron Perlman fan and bought the movie just to see him. So you can see why I'm a little disappointed. I've tried contacting his fan club site with no avail. Is it possible to contact the production company, I wonder? I cannot imagine why they list this movie as a credit for Ron but he is not in it. I bought the DVD and the tape, hoping that they DVD was have it for obvious reasons. I did love the movie as a whole though. I loved how the paintings seemed to come alive. And the violinists was so amazing, so gorgeous. The music was really heartwarming and wonderful.
