The Commitments DVD £3.99 at Amazon & Play

An irresistible, comic drama from director Alan Parker (Evita, Mississippi Burning), overflowing and alive with passion, humor and music, The Commitments showcases some old R&B standards in a new light. A headstrong, fast-talking, ambitious young Dubliner (Robert Arkins) fancies himself a promoter of talent, and sets about assembling and packaging a local Irish R&B band. His group of self-absorbed, backbiting, but stunningly talented individuals begin to succeed beyond his wildest dreams, until petty jealousies and recrimination threaten to scuttle the whole deal. A moody, vivid and soulful exploration of the Dublin club scene as well as a showcase for some wonderful unknown actors, the film (and its wonderful soundtrack) also features the actual band covering classic soul tunes from the likes of Otis Redding and Sam and Dave. It's that combination of soul and soul music that makes The Commitments a special little film.

This is one of the best films ever, and it has been around for a lot longer that you have stated.

Good films are like fine wines

I got the date of amazon's website as its the dvd release rather than film release

But it makes no difference if its so good everyone will have it and even those who dont wont expect to pay higher prices anyway - ancient dvds are always around this price hence the deal is nothing special imo. It is just taking up space

This was worth a post as

a) The film is actually 20 years old this year.
b) the original cast (all except Maria Doyle Kennedy) are doing an Irish tour at the moment for charity.

Thanks OP. Ordered!

Beware : this is a 4:3 transfer. I don't know if it's still the case but to get a widescreen version I got the special edition from Amazon Germany
