I read several of the reviews complaining about poor video and audio quality, and was hesitant about ordering the new 45th Anniversary Zhivago.
It was a favourite movie, I only had an old betamax copy of the movie.
The quality of the Blu-ray is quite good, there is detail beyond what you would find on a DVD copy for certain.
While the movie's picture quality doesn't rival recent movies, this may have to do with more sophisticated lighting designs today, and much bigger budgets. Undoubtably image capture technology has advanced in 45 years, and today, cinematographers have more tools to capture the breath-taking images that we pay to see in the cinema.
If Zhivago is a movie you've enjoyed in the past, and did not buy a DVD copy of it, then whole-heartedly, enjoy the movie again in Blu-ray. There is a visible difference.
With respect to the soundtrack, remember that it is a digitally restored soundtrack. It is not a soundtrack from a 2010 block-buster. The sound is clear and balanced, but does not have the dynamic range of today's movies. It didn't 45 years ago, and doesn't today.
Enjoy a classic movie, in good image and sound quality, and considering the cost of seeing a movie at a movie theater, the special price that amazon.ca currently offers is a good value.
By the way, the bonus audio CD was a nice treat!

David Lean's "Doctor Zhivago" had a difficult task when it was released, following two of the greatest films ever made in "Bridge on the River Kwai" and "Lawrence of Arabia." That is stands up so well to those two titans is impressive indeed.
"Doctor Zhivago," based on the novel of the same name, is a tale of love, loss and life during the Russian Revolution. Grand in scope (do we expect anything but from David Lean?) yet personal in scale, the film is less a point A to point B story as it is snippets of a man's life, the trials he faces and the women he loves.
At three hours and twenty minutes, this is a long film. We linger in seemingly small moments of life. The first hour is spent simply setting up the cast of characters whose lives will become so intertwined later, or whose unexpected appearance will startle us late in the film. Yet rarely does the film feel slow. The pace, while deliberate, works.
The sweep of the landscape and scope of the story is epic in proportions. We see stunning vistas and gorgeous landscapes; sprawling masses of people; a beautifully rendered Moscow; and locations that are a joy to see. Others have mentioned that "Doctor Zhivago" comes from the same realm of storytelling as "Gone With The Wind." That is an accurate assessment.
Lean pulls out a series of great directing tricks, with stylish cinematography and cuts on par with "Lawrence of Arabia's" famous match-to-desert cut, giving this film a number of memorable filmmaking moments.
Movie fans should be thankful that once again, one of Lean's classic films have been given a worthy DVD release.
The quality on this special edition DVD release is wonderful.

What a wonderful surprise to discover this film as finally been released in the DVD format. Indeed, absolutely no one was a more masterful film maker than David Lean, the British director of such classics as "Lawrence of Arabia", "Bridge Over the River Kwai", "Ryan's Daughter" and, of course, "Doctor Zhivago" (see my reviews of all these films). Lean's cinematography is always spectacular and breathtaking, for he had a special appreciation for how the nature of one's natural surroundings set the stage and influenced the dramatic proceedings. Thus, Lean characteristically focused his films on the ways in which individuals and their personal characteristics clash and meld with the larger social, cultural, and historical surround in which they are located, and so each film is a uniquely captivating study of the specific dynamics of each particular individual situation. Each of these films is also a well-choreographed and photographed excursion into the topography, climate, and landscape of the geographic location in which the drama unfolds. The eyes and ears are always delighted by what Lean displays.
Here the beauty and innocence of nature is constantly contrasted with the ugliness, artificiality, and depravity of man's environs both under the Czar as well as under the brutally repressive communist regime. Omar Sharif turns on a wonderful performance as young Yuri Zhivago, by turns an orphan, poet, and medical doctor sponsored by the family he will soon marry into. The character of Zhivago is that of an unrepentant innocent, a true Russian peasant transported by situation and circumstance away from his rural origins into the bustling aristocracy of Moscow before the October revolution.

"Doctor Zhivago" (1965) is simply an outstanding film, directed by David Lean and based on a novel of the same written by Boris Pasternak. How good is it? Well, it lasts more than three hours, but that doesn?t seem long, as you quickly become immersed in the story.

The movie begins with a flashback, as General Yevgraf Zhivago (Alec Guinness) is looking for the lost daughter of his dead brother, Yuri Zhivago, and a woman named Lara. Zhivago s book, "Lara s poems", was forbidden for a long time in the URSS, but has given him fame. Yevgraf talks to a beautiful young woman (Rita Tushingham) that could well be Zhivago s daughter, and he begins to tell her the story of her parents.

Truth to be told, I cannot describe well enough all you will see in this movie. Suffice it to say that "Dr. Zhivago" is an incredibly good love story, set against the backdrop of the First World War and the Russian revolution. Yuri (Omar Sharif) is a doctor and a poet whose opinions eventually land him in trouble, as they are far from politically correct. Lara (Julie Christie) is a woman that has survived very tragic events, and that married the wrong man, a fanatic obsessed with revolution who thinks that "The personal life is dead in Russia. History has killed it". Lara and Yuri briefly meet each other in their youth, but it is only much later that they realize they are in love. Unfortunately, by that time they both are married. They go their separate ways, but... this film wouldn t be so long if the story finished there :)

If you are interested in what happened to them, and want to know whether the young woman is their daughter, please watch "Dr. Zhivago". Not all your questions will be answered, but you will enjoy a film that really deserves to be called a classic. Highly recommended!
