... the "Oliver Twist" knockoff forgoes the social commentary of Dickens to play up the gooey romantic fantasy of music as the language of love.

The film didn't do as well as hoped at the box office, and the lackluster audience reception has resulted in a rather bare-bones Blu-ray release.

If you approach it with the right attitude, it's impossible not to be moved by this tale of music, loss, and passion.

When a movie is as disappointing and simplistic as this family melodrama, showing deleted scenes in the DVD edition (March 2008) only exposes more the film's shortcomings.
