Did You Know?


Early in the movie, Marcus opens an old-fashioned, mechanical music box which plays the first few stanzas of the melody to the nursery rhyme "Row, Row, Row Your Boat". Before it plays the last stanza ("Life is but a dream"), however, he abruptly shuts its lid, stopping the music. The next time he opens it, its mechanism should resume playing where the song had left off, but instead it starts over, at the beginning of the song. See more »

Sound spoiled the experience
27 March 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I could have easily watched this all the way through had it not been for the movies sound. I cannot fathom what on earth the sound people think their doing. During quiet voice sections I was constantly having to rewind and turn the volume up to hear what the actors were saying and then turn it down during the loud music sections. Just after half way through I switched it off which was a shame because its a decent film but you need to get in to the vibe rather than automate the film with the remote control. Perhaps it was just the copy I watched?

I may pick it up again when Im in the mood and knowing what the sound is like I will be better prepared because I would have liked this movie for its interesting story.
