Descripción del producto
Eigentlich könnte der Erfolgskomponist George Webber rundrum zufrieden sein: Luxusvilla, Rolls Royce und eine zauberhafte Freundin. Doch George träumt von der absoluten Traumfrau - der Göttin seiner Phantasie. Eines Tages steht sie vor ihm - leider auf dem Weg zum Traualtar. Aber George ist nicht der Mann, der deshalb aufgibt.

Moore plays a fortyish songwriter who has developed the mother of all mid-life crisis's. Julie Andrews (who looks fantastic here BTW) shines as his impatient love interest and Bo Derek is lovely as Dudley's fantasy girl. Brian Dennehy and Dee Wallace-Stone are very good in supporting roles.
The DVD transfer is good especially for a film that has a little age. The sound is mono only which is disappointing but understandable. This is one of Blake Edwards best films and a must see for fans of romantic comedy. It is sad and sobering to realize that both Moore's and Andrew's gifts have been diminished by illness. Grab this DVD and take time to remember how really talented they both are.
By chance, he spies a beautiful young woman (played by Bo Derek) who is on her way to her wedding. She is the most gorgeous creature he has ever seen and he immediately becomes obsessed with her. This obsession leads to a great many mis-adventures that lead the viewer through the balance of the film.
While it is not apparent on the surface, I would characterize 10 as a dark comedy. It is somewhat morose to think about getting older and no longer being young & vibrant. The creative ways in which the film differentiates Moore's character from the young lover of Bo Derek's persona are almost creepy.
Aside from the tragic loss of youth, the film is also a commentary on the issue of people's personalities not matching their exterior appearance. While she is beautiful, Bo Derek's character is found to be quit wanting on the personality side of the ledger. She is shallow and superficial. Insofar as being a worthwhile person, she can hardly compete with George's girlfriend (portrayed by Julie Andrews).
Of all of Blake Edward's films, this one is probably in the top 5. It is insightful into what troubles we human beings as we grapple with your mortality and the decline of our bodies. On the upside, there is also some gratuitous nudity, although they could have shown a LOT more of Bo Derek. If Amazon had a 10 star rating, I would give this one a 9!
The thing about this Blake Edwards' movie is that all of us can find ourselves in it and as opposed to a today's movies who relate to nothing, this flick is what life is all about: love, life, laughter, sadness, happiness, confusion, misunderstandings of all sorts etc. There is nothing dated about that. Some reviewers said that it is dated. It maybe so because today's movies do not reach for your heart and brain, that only reach for your wallet. Today's movies do not get involved in understanding of a human spirit, but that get involved in understanding of green screen and 3d BS. Anyway, the movie is backed up by a fabulous music by Mancini (as always), especially Dudley's solo part in the Mexican nigh bar. We have it on dvd, but yesterday I ordered it on blu-ray because no matter what the transfer looks like, it is still going to bit a lot better than to watch it on dvd and full HD tv. And, of course, it is a new copy of an all time favorite which is going to be with us for many years to come. Highly recommended!
UPDATE February 10, 2012.
Today I received blu-ray and I am actually very very surprised! This blu-ray has pretty good VQ! I was reading reviews about how bad it is and thought it was going to be really bad (well. better than dvd), but in fact it is pretty clear, with warm picture noise. Definitely a huge step forward in viewing experience of this movie! Thumbs UP!
This is a movie for adults, about the difficulty of aging; the irrational but equally alluring desire for lusty sex; marriage and its banal familiarities as well as mutual support. Dudley Moore's physical comedy is overbroad and has aged badly. Julie Andrews' character is rather one dimensional, and you can't really see why she is interested in Moore, but for their combined musical affection. Bo Derek is beautiful in a barbie sort of way, and actually plays her role well, as a breezy young beauty who lives for the moment. She is an archetypal california girl, a symbol of youth and spirit, and Moore is drawn to her as he feels his own youth fading away.
There is some brief dialogue regarding the sexual emancipation of women, but it doesn't really go anywhere. There is an interesting interplay in the voyeurism of Moore and his hypersexed neighbor in the hollywood hills, which serves as a counterpoint in extremis to Moore's dirty old man fantasies of infinite virility.
In the end, Moore chooses a return to normalcy, but you don't really understand his motivation. He is ultimately disturbed by Bo derek's unashamed sexuality; he first gains interest in her when she is on the way to her wedding, dressed in virginal white. So as an ideal, his psyche runs away with him. But once he discovers that she has her own sexuality, he runs away like a frightened boy. Same old madonna-whore stuff. Yawn. Where are the real adults in these types of movies?
An interesting film on similar issues is the actually quite good eyes wide shut by kubrick. If you have the time, watch these two together.
In any case, the great american film about adult sexuality and marriage remains to be made.
