The DVD menu looks very dated but is easy to navigate. The film usually starts up right away when you put the the DVD in. There are only 2 Special Features: a commentary track and the film trailer. The 8-page booklet is nice. The main thing about the DVD is it plays in Standard screen format, so the image was modified to fit your old TV screen (4:3 ratio).
The Blu-ray menu look significantly better. The film also starts up on its own rather quickly if you don't make a menu choice. There are more Special Features: a commentary track and 3 featurettes (1 about the making of the movie and depicting an Italian family, 1 about Italian restaurants in New York which includes a chef cooking up a 3-item meal, 1 about the music of the film). All 3 featurettes are good. I should say that the featurette about the New York Italian restaurants is NOT listed on the back cover. There is no booklet or insert at all. The format is supposed to be widescreen (1.85:1 ratio) but it fills the screen without any black bars on the bottom and top, so it may actually be a somewhat enlarged and cropped version of the full frame presentation... I can't tell but it doesn't seem to show that much more image on the sides as the DVD did.
The Blu-ray is an improvement over the DVD in terms of audio and video, but the film really deserves an even better remastering. As with most movies, there's a degree of inconsistency in the quality of filming in terms of lighting, graininess, etc. in the original source material. Certain scenes look very good, even on the DVD, while others look very grainy and more like watching a VHS tape.
It's a film worth owning and I recommend the Blu-ray over the DVD. I picked this Blu-ray up on sale for $5.
This movie is especially heartwarming as it depicts an Italian-American family better than any movie I have ever seen. I am a member of a large Italian family and I can vouch for its authenticity! The Castorini home even reminded me of many of those of my Italian relatives, filled with much good food and good conversation as well as memories of love and family. This is truly a wonderful movie experience!
This DVD version features an option to watch the movie while listening to a voice over by director Norman Jewison, writer John Patrick Shanley and lead actress Cher. I thoroughly enjoyed this feature, as each added amusing anecdotes about the filming of the movie, as well as their own input about various scenes and information about the other actors.
My focus was on the acting and the characters and how they filled the story.... and fill the story they each most certainly did.
Each actor's portrayal could be a study in itself, from the starring roles to the minor, one scene cameos and supporting players: each is rich in expression and integral to the story.
I especially enjoyed how colorfully the "background" characters weaved their way into one another's lives -- it made me, as an audience member, also feel richly woven in with the rest of them.
Nicholas Cage and Cher are an invigorating pairing (hooray for an older woman younger man for a change!) who match one another, soulful eye for soulful eye.
Add the "Bella Luna" and the music and New York (how I miss it!) and viola! A delightful treat to fill any two hour time period in your day.

Released in 1987, this sentimental comedy is as fresh today as it was back then. On a background aroma of New York Little Italy, it features a widow who, on her way to marriage,... Read morePublished 4 days ago by R. Paquette
