Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
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!

This movie is a classic. Sound and picture great on blu-ray. My 45th Anniversary Edition came with 2 discs. The movie on Blu-ray disc. The special features on DVD disc. Folding cardboard and plastic case with attached booklet containing colour and B&W photos, trivia, and actor bios etc.

Format: DVD
Although I agree that this is a wonderful film (if a bit overlong), and is worth watching, I feel that, in his effort to make another "epic" and trying to match his incomparable "Lawrence Of Arabia" and "The Bridge On The River Kwai" , David Lean missed out on a more in-depth and meaningful plot.
The novel, is more or less, a love story that takes place during the Russian Revolution, and the turmoil that this event inflicted on the human spirit. Boris Pasternak was basically calling things as he saw and experienced them, since he witnessed this upheaval. While the movie is gorgeous and fascinating to look at, and the music is superb, adding to the haunting quality of the story and the characters, the film fails to become a more intimate look at the people's lives, and therefore is missing some of the crucial elements of the book. Not to demean the late Robert Bolt, who was a very gifted screenwriter, and he deserved the Oscar he received, but he didn't (or perhaps, couldn't) recreate the labor of love that Pasternak penned.
It was wonderful to see Julie Christie and Tom Courtenay together again on-screen, as they had such a smashing success with John Schlesinger's delicious "Billy Liar" (1963). However, the love story of Lara and Pasha, so sweetly detailed in the novel, is relegated to pretty much a back story or a minor plot element, perhaps to capitalize on Lara's destructive affair with Victor Komorovsky (the late and wonderfully devious Rod Steiger), and her upcoming, face-to-face encounter with Yuri Zhivago (Omar Sharif).

This film totally captures the feeling and grit of going from having all to having none. Living multiple lives, and being caught between what you should do, versus what you want to do and what you want out of life. Multi-level plot. Fantastic characters. Great actors. Watch it in the winter, cuddled up with a nice hot cup of tea, perhaps by a fire.... You will feel it!... Trust me.

This is a wonderfully new mastered edition. The story never gets old and the quality and sound on this DVD is perfect and takes me back to seeing it many years ago on the big screen!

I love the scenery, plot, acting, and music. It took me back in history with the highs and lows of the human condition.

I chose this rating because it's a fantastic story, wonderful scenery and one of my favourite movies of all time. Hadn't seen it in a few years and it was everything that I had remembered. Loved it!

The movie Dr Zhivago we purchased from Amazon was terrible, it froze up half way through and we were unable to get it to play so we have not been able to watch the rest of the movie.
