Miscues

Spider, Warner Bros
26 December 2013
  • Summary: In Watching this movie you will find some discontinuty problems with the music matching the motions. At the Organ scene the music swells while August is playing but the hands of the player remain still. In the Concert scene you will find that the Orchestra begins without the conductor starting them. Big NO!NO!! Also that during the playing of the piece August's hands start shaking while the Orchestra is still in the last 3rd of the song.
  • Pros: Engaging Characters, Entertaining, Original

The best example of heartfelt depth!

Ernie M, Musician, Warner Bros
15 March 2010
  • Summary: This is one of my very favorite movies of all time, among those such as Crash and Patch Adams, that truly reveals the places of music and depth that goes beyond common understanding and the charts. You will never forget this touching, warm, and heart-tugging creation! And if you have a Blu-Ray player and at least a 5.1 channel surround sound receiver or processor with subwoofer, this is the best way to feel and watch this movie on Blu-Ray as recorded and intended by the...

Creative & Touching Film

BluSax, blu-ray.com
8 September 2008
  • Excerpt: It's very hard these days to find a family film that I can put on for my 15 year old daughter and not make her feel like I am trying "daddy" her. This film captured her attention as well as the rest of the familie's. I strongly agree with the initial review of this film on Blu-Ray.com that apart, some of the aspects of this movie would have caused disaster, but together, they made a movie that can be enjoyed by the whole family and is a keeper for any collection.

Feel Good Film

Pseudoblu, blu-ray.com
22 July 2008
  • Excerpt: My favorite part of this movie is the unique styly of guitar playing... Not only is that first scene when he starts smacking that guitar around literally music to my ears and in a surround sound setting that makes me hit the back button to watch it again but is something that makes your mouth drop. The story is interesting and moving yet a little slow at times with August's sense of always seeming to be Dazed & Confused..
