I love this movie but please be aware that it is "Full Screen", not widescreen as described. However, I don't know if a widescreen version is actually available. I have not found one yet.

3.0 out of 5 stars Missing Extras, July 17 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Sadly, the extras on the Blu-Ray are missing compared to the Ultimate Edition DVD. I bought both but I prefer the DVD. The picture quality is almost the same on both.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great set, Dec 31 2010
Yes the packaging is not the best but it's the movie that we are rating here.

Great entertaiment at a good price. The quality of the video is better than on TV. I like this set.

2.0 out of 5 stars There is a reason why this DVD is cheap!, May 16 2010
There is no doubt that the art represented here is beautiful. However, this does not excuse the fact that there is not a single word spoken throughout nor are there any captions explaining where these scenes were shot. There are no credits at the end and the disk replays from the begining in a continous loop. Basically what you are buying is more like a store demo disk. What this should be at the very least is a short documentary. The box does not even include a little insert or brochure that may be a assistance. If, as the other reviewer is saying, it was 'like being there" at least I would know where I was.

Other than the 1080i it is a sad use of a Blu-ray disk: no extras, no menus, no narration, no captions, no inserts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't believe everything you read, Dec 24 2008
This review is from: The Christmas Shoes (DVD)
Don't believe the other reviewer. This is a beautiful and touching story of a little boy who is about to loose his mother and his efforts to get her the perfect present for Christmas: a pair of red dancing shoes.
