If you are unfamiliar with Harper, you will really enjoy this DVD, and if you are a fan you will feel blessed by the end of your first viewing. Expect to come back to it and explore the many and diverse extra tracks, including French and English commentaries, over and over again. The movie is compassionate and intriguing, and stands alone as a film. It is quick paced, and has all the elements of a good story. The music will make you a fan, and inspire + soothe your spirit. The Extras: interviews, music videos, studio recordings, etc. are worth the price of the DVD alone. Life is short, but you will enjoy this for a long time.
