Format: DVD
Alan Parker once again put together a previously unknown cast and has produced a fantastic movie with some stellar individual performances.
"The Commitments" is the story of the struggle to escape unemployment and poverty, set in Dublin but equally relevant in any major city this movie chronicles the efforts of a new band to achieve fame and glory. The band choose soul music as their vehicle out of the ghetto at a time when James Brown is just a memory adding spice to an already engaging tale. After a faltering start the band start to pull it together only for their lack of discipline and focus to abort their chances at the very moment when real opportunity is at their door.
The music is the star of the show with fantastic numbers such as "At the Midnight Hour", "Mustang Sally" and "Try a Little Tenderness" littered through the movie. The musical performances of Mary Doyle Kennedy (Natalie)and Andrew Strong (Deco)and the acting of Robert Arkins (Jimmy) are really superb.
This movie is enhanced by this new format on widescreen DVD, but what makes it work is the screenplay, great acting and wonderfull music regardless of format.

This did not work in my region so the DVD was useless. This may not have been the fault of the seller. The cost to return was way too high.

Although this DVD did play beautifully on my laptop - it would not play at all on our home TV! All other DVD's have always played - whether the quility was bad or good - not sure why this happened really???! However, it was a gift, and as a gift, was a dissappointment unfortunately. I have never encountered this issue before and hope it doesn't happen in the future - still willing to purchase from this site - or at least until such time as the same problem is revisited :0(

Movie great once I got the right format. Original one came from Italy??? Why would a DVD ordered in Canada, come from Italy where the format is totally different?

DVD arrived 2 days later than promised. Cover was in Italian only. I opened it anyway, hoping that there were language selection choices , The DVD would not even play on my Canadian machine. The AMAZON listing showed no indication that this DVD was only playable on European DVD format, nor that it was in Italian only. Now I have the inconvenience of returning it.

ordered 0ct 18th, 2013 and just received it today, nov 21st , 2013. it had to come from Italy, so what could I expect ?! didn't know that when I ordered it ! then I find out it's a region 2 dvd, which I had no idea what that meant even though I read it in the amazon write up! however, upon receiving it , I tried to play it on my computer through windows media player, and that's when I found out that it couldn't play a region 2 format ! I then remembered another player name and downloaded it. it's called VLC media player and it played my movie with no problemo! (cause the dvd came from Italy :-)) very happy with this purchase and vecosell was very prompt in processing my order. bravo vecosell ! if you have purchased this dvd and you can't play it on your dvd player, then download VLC media player on your computer, hook up to your tv via hdmi and enjoy the movie. I did ! thanks for listening; and by the way, happy Thursday!
