It's seamless, and I think that's all I got to say to recommend this edit. I remember being very attached to the characters the first time I watched this film compared to now, but then that could have been my preference at that time since the edits before the ending are minor.
A good ending is not necessarily a happy one. This is the main point this edit proves, and does it exquisitely.
I enjoyed the Theatrical Cut, yet was confused by its ending. I felt it didn't do justice with the rest of the film and sacrificed its internal logic in favor of a saccharine twist. This edit fixes that issue, as well as a few smaller issues I did not remember, but upon comparison seem well deserving.
The technical aspects, as always, are perfect and seamless.
All in all a very recommended edit.
What could i possibly say about this edit other then stunning?
I rembered the original pretty good despite the fact i´ve watched it 7 years ago. Loved it back then but always was troubled by this heartwarming hollywood ending. Your edit may be sadder but way more comforting for the character. Barely noticed your changes, so hats off to you. The phone call to his dad is well placed.
Its been a while since I saw the original, so I couldn't exactly tell or remember where certain scenes differed, which means this was very well done! Great pacing and the ending is way more impactful and meaningful than the original. Great edit and my go to recommendation for a fan-edit from now on. Thank you
