I just watched a rather wonderful little film called Before The Rains so that I could review it for DVD & Blu-ray Review this month. About halfway through I realised it was reminding me of another wonderful little film, Enchanted April, which I watched on TV many, many years ago and have never seen since.
They’ve not really got much in common except for beautiful scenery (India and Italy, respectively), excellent casts and languid pacing, but there was enough of a parallel for me to decide to investigate whether Enchanted April is out on DVD yet.
I’ve looked several times over the last few years, always hopeful, but Enchanted April was only ever available on VHS. I was even considering asking DVD & Blu-ray Review to mention it in their “Please Release Me” section, except that I never got round to requesting it.
But I don’t have to now, because to my ABSOLUTE AMAZEMENT, Enchanted April is released on Monday.
Years. Years, I’ve been waiting for this release. And I find out three days before it’s finally in the shops simply because I watched a film that was vaguely similar.
I’ve got chills. I kid you not. It’s… a sign, or something. What’re the odds?
