Overview

Anthony Minghella's supernatural love story Truly, Madly, Deeply comes to DVD with a standard full-frame transfer that fails to preserve the original theatrical aspect ratio of the film. A closed-captioned English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital Surround, while Spanish and French soundtracks have been recorded in Dolby Digital Mono. Subtitles are accessible in all three of those languages as well. Supplemental materials include a commentary track recorded by the director, an interview with the director, and the original theatrical trailer. This is a decent release from MGM/UA that does offers quality extras.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Often referred to as the thinking person's Ghost, Anthony Minghella's Truly, Madly, Deeply offers a poignant look at all-encompassing love, a pleasant alternative to films that resort to emotional manipulation to tell a simple love story. The film is distinguished by Minghella's truthful and emotionally resonant approach. When Nina cries at her psychiatrist's, she sheds real, sloppy tears, complete with a runny nose. And, although Nina is initially overcome with happiness at Jamie's return, his presence forces her to recall all of his habits that annoyed her while he was alive. The honesty of Minghella's method rescues Truly, Madly, Deeply from the excess sentiment of many romantic dramas. The message here is to move on while casting a fond eye towards the past, and, as relayed by Minghella and his immensely talented cast (most notably Juliet Stevenson and Alan Rickman), that message is a touching, surprisingly funny, and inspiring one.

This movie was heartwarmingly sweet, sad and at times funny. It poignantly shows that it knows that when you lose someone, time should stand still, but in fact, life does go on.
