Product Description

Amazon.ca

Writer Ernest Thompson, who came up with the original stage play of On Golden Pond and adapted it for film, is lucky to have two giants of the screen give dignity and breadth to his sometimes trite dialogue. Henry Fonda, in his last role, plays a prickly English professor at the disagreeable age of 80. Visiting his summer house by a Maine lake with his wife (Katharine Hepburn), the old man forges an unlikely bond with a lonely boy, comes to terms with his daughter (Jane Fonda), and suffers disorienting effects of mild dementia. Even playing a tired old man, Fonda is an absolute lion of a movie star, and Hepburn brings her special spirit to the part of his worried bride. The onscreen relationship between Henry and Jane Fonda naturally makes one think about their much-discussed difficulties offscreen, but that's a side benefit in a movie that is really just a celebration of simple human decency. Directed by Mark Rydell (Harry and Walter Go to New York). The DVD release has widescreen presentation, director's commentary, documentary footage on the making of the film, theatrical trailer, notes and information about the production, and optional Spanish subtitles. --Tom Keogh

1.0 out of 5 stars Did not work Aug. 13 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I purchased this movie from a company I have used before, to the best of my knowledge they are a North American company, why they would send me a movie that is formatted to Europe is beyond me. I live in Canada why would this make sense, anyway it will not play on my computer. I have contacted them, for a refund, but of course I have to send the movie back blah blah who can be bothered.

5.0 out of 5 stars Holds up well June 19 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This film is older now, but still holds up well. The story is timeless, and actors are completely engaging. Dave Grusin's music is so beautiful and has presence. DVD quality adds so much more depth to both the audio and visual aspects. The extras are really interesting and I feel I learned more about the art of filmmaking just from hearing about their experiences.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic movie for the whole family March 11 2014

We love this movie, it is a classic and a movie you never tire from. A really good movie to watch if you go to a cottage on the lake too, then you really feel the movie more I think.

1.0 out of 5 stars DVD Movie On Golden Pond Oct. 29 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
We tried playing this movie on DVD players, blue ray, play station or any other device we have does not read the DVD On Golden Pond, so needless to say was very disappointing. Movie will sit on our shelf as we will not be paying the shipping to have this item returned.
