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!
Growing up in England in the 1960s in England it was hard to miss the revolution that was taking place in comedy as well as in other areas of the arts. Dudley Moore was an integral part of that revolution along with his friend and colleague Peter Cook. Sadly much of their recorded output is no longer available. Even sadder is the growing number of those performers who were part of that revolution who are no longer with us.
10 is the story of a wealthy composer who has everything that money can buy and a long-suffering girlfriend played by Julie Andrews who has a mind of her own.
Moore sees Derek, in her first starring role, and pursues her through a series of misunderstandings from the moment he first sees her on her way to a wedding to finally being alone with her in her hotel room where he discovers her to be a hedonist only seeking self-gratification.
The movie is notable for the consideable degree of nudity and for it's moralising on the relaxed social attitudes, if in fact there were any, following on from the nineteen sixties social revolution. There is a moralising tone throughout as we follow Dudley's escapades and although there are a number of humourous situations it is hard to tell whether it was intended as a comedy or whether there was a more dramatic intent.
It is nevertheless a warm nice movie and in some ways is more representative of Dudley Moore the person than his other silver screen appearances. Bo Derek gives a faultless performance as the pleasure seeking girl but that is all her role is limited to. Julie Andrews will forever remain to me the way she was in the Sound of Nusic and that is all I can say about it.
This DVD is a pleasant way to remember Dudley Moore. He would be better remembered if his catalogue of films and music were once again to be made available for public pleasure and enjoyment.
