And now it's on DVD!!!
4 April 2007 | by peckinpaSee all my reviews

Thanks to the other commentators for providing encouraging reviews, which prompted me to buy it, sight unseen, when I came across a DVD listing. I agree--a remarkable, endearing film, one that demands purchase. I need to have this film on my shelf for repeat viewings. The movie is beautiful to look at, the story is very moving--a magical experience. And Marina Vlady (whom I have admired in the past) is lovely beyond words in this film--this role expresses her unique look better than any other, just as she embodies Ina better than any other actress could have.

The DVD, released by Ivy Video, is very nice, with a 4:3 aspect ratio. It includes a commentary track by Dan Yakir and a photo gallery. I found it at Movies Unlimited. Hurry and get it while it's available! Anyone seeking an enchanting experience won't be disappointed.
