Good actors will make you believe - great actors will make you feel. Based on the wonderful story by Christopher Isherwood, this is a deeply felt & heartwarming, life reaffirming movie, that reaches out & grabs you from the first moment. It takes us on the journey of one man's love for another. Colin Firth's performances is a career best with a superlative portrayal of grief. love lost, joy, pain, anguish...and young Nicholas Hoult from CH4's 'Skins' is a revalation - both are electrifying when they share the screen together. This reaches out & touches a part in all of us & you feel what this man feels. Great movie, beautifully filmed & photograped with an exemplary BD transfer. The picture can & deliberately does, change from washed out & drab, to vivid blooming colour & incredably sharp detail - this was Director's: Tom Fords intention. grain is there in minor quantity, but gives the movie a wonderful film -like glow. Perfect attention to early 1960's Los Angeles period detail only adds to a great movie experience, complimented by a fantastic musical score delivered through rich & immersive DTS HD Master Audio. Can't really fault this underrated masterpiece, that takes its rightful place in this movie lover's blu-ray collection. Sublime!!!
