Product description

Product Description

In a small, woodsy Oregon town, a group of friends - sensitive Gordie (Wil Wheaton), tough guy Chris (River Phoenix), flamboyant Teddy (Corey Feldman), and scaredy-cat Vern (Jerry O'Connell) - are in search of a missing teenager's body. Wanting to be heroes in each other's and their hometown's eyes, they set out on an unforgettable two-day trek that turns into an odyssey of self-discovery. When they encounter the town's knife-wielding hoods, the boys discover a strength they never knew they had. Based on the novella "The Body" by Stephen King, STAND BY ME is a rare and special film about friendship and the indelible experience of growing up.

Special Features

Looking back on the popular 1986 film 14 years later, director Rob Reiner has several great stories to tell about his breakthrough hit. Reiner's folksy commentary and a new 35-minute featurette (with new interviews from the cast) illustrate how much of the film draws from the personal experiences of Reiner and novelist Stephen King. Both the featurette and Reiner's commentary touch on the tricky casting of the film (starring four adolescent boys), the problems with finding the right narrator (finally performed by Reiner's childhood friend, Richard Dreyfuss), and the ironic sadness of River Phoenix's death (whose character's premature death triggers the flashback that comprises almost all of the film). Descriptions of the production's originial producer-screenwriters and long-shot logistics are, unfortunately, relegated to the liner notes. Also contains an isolated musical score track (punctuated by several early rock favorites), production notes, the MTV video of the title song, and digitally remastered audio and video. --Doug Thomas

5.0 out of 5 stars Ein großartiger Film!
Reviewed in Germany on October 16, 2018
An „Stand by me“ kann man wunderschön sehen, was man aus einer Kurzgeschichte alles rausholen kann. Dabei grenzt es schon fast an ein Wunder, dass es diesen Film überhaupt gibt, denn die beiden Drehbuchautoren und Produzenten BRUCE A. EVANS und RAYNOLD GIDEON, blitzten mit ihrer Idee bei allen großen Hollywood-Studios ab.
Erst das kleine und eher unbedeutende Studio „Embassy Pictures“ gab ihnen die Chance den Film zu verwirklichen. Um diesen Film zu verwirklichen standen Regisseur ROB REINER lächerliche 8 Millionen $ zur Verfügung, „Stand by me“ spielte allein in den USA aber 52 Millionen $ ein.

Der Titel leitet sich vom gleichnamigen Song von BEN E. KING ab, ursprünglich sollte er eigentlich „The Body“ heißen, nach der Novelle von STEPHEN KING. „The Body“ wurde aber von Columbia Pictures abgelehnt, weil er sich eher nach einem Sexfilm oder einem Bodybuilder-Film anhören würde. ROB REINER kam dann auf die Idee ihn „Stand by me“ zu nennen.
Überhaupt ist der Soundtrack zum Film granatenmäßig gut, um ein authentisches Zeitgefühl zu schaffen, haben sich die Macher unzählige Hits aus den späten 50ern zu Nutze gemacht. Neben der Musik von BEN E. KING gibt es u.a. auch noch Hits wie „Everyday“ von BUDDY HOLLY, „Great Balls of Fire“ von JERRY LEE LEWIS oder „Lollipop“ von den CHORDETTES zu hören.
Trotzdem der Song „Stand by me“ erst 1961 erschienen ist, die Handlung aber 1959 spielt, wurde er als Titel ausgewählt.

Die Darsteller sind wirklich große Klasse, vor allem RIVER PHOENIX finde ich grandios. Am Ende des Films werden ja die Geschichten der vier Freunde erzählt, was aus ihnen geworden ist. Dabei gibt es wirklich überraschende Parallelen zum wirklichen Leben einiger Akteure, so verstarb RIVER PHOENIX (Chris Chambers) tatsächlich sehr jung, COREY FELDMAN (Teddy Duchamp) landetet tatsächlich im Knast und WILL WHEATON (Gordie Lachance) ist inzwischen ein erfolgreicher Autor. JERRY O'CONNELL (Vern Tessio) arbeitet sehr erfolgreich als Schauspieler, in Deutschland ist er vor allem als Detective „WOODY“ HOYT aus der Serie „Crossing Jordan“ bekannt.
Einige der Figuren des Films, wie etwa „Vern Tessio“ oder „Gordon Lachance“, kommen auch noch in anderen Romanen von STEPHEN KING vor. Auch das Städtchen „Castle Rock“ kommt in vielen Werken KINGS vor.
Neben den oben erwähnten Jungschauspielern haben mir auch noch KIEFER SUTHERLAND (Ace Merril) und RICHARD DREYFUS als erwachsener „Gordie Lachance“ sehr gut gefallen.

„Stand by me“ gefällt mir so gut, weil er sehr stimmungsvoll ist und die Jugendzeit der vier Hauptprotagonisten sehr authentisch darstellt. ROB REINER hat die Stimmung der 50er-Jahre und das Flair des ländlichen Oregon sehr schön eingefangen.
Die einzelnen Figuren werden sehr detailliert beschrieben, ihre Charakter klar herausgearbeitet, das ist wirklich große Klasse.
STEPHEN KING selber war voll des Lobes über diesen Film, er sagte später einmal, dass er „in seinen Augen die erste gelungene Verfilmung eines seiner Werke sei“. Mehr Lob an Regisseur ROB REINER geht nun wirklich nicht.

Die Story ist gar nicht mal so raffiniert, aber was ROB REINER und die Drehbuchautoren BRUCE A. EVANS und RAYNOLD GIDEON daraus gemacht haben, sehr wohl.
Erzählt wird die Geschichte vierer Freunde, die durch Zufall erfahren, wo die Leiche eines vermissten Jungen liegt. Kurz entschlossen begeben sie sich auf eine zweitägige Wanderung, bei der sie einige Abenteuer erleben ….

Mein Fazit: Die Stärke des Films ist die Tiefe, der emotionale Hintergrund, die Gespräche in denen die Jungs über ihre Probleme und Ängste berichten. ROB REINER setzt überhaupt nicht auf Action, diese ist sehr spärlich gesät, er setzt voll auf Handlung, Emotionen und Tiefgang.
Ich persönlich finde den Film einfach klasse, er gehört zu meinen absoluten Favoriten, deshalb kann ich ihn auch ohne Bedenken und mit gutem Gewissen weiterempfehlen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic King Coming of Age Story
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on October 10, 2019
I bought the UHD blu ray because I wanted to see this at it's very best. The picture looks absolutely lovely, I really like the cinematography, films the outdoors and the woods are among my favourite settings for a film. The detailed lush green environment looks really great. The film is similar to It in several respects, the small town surrounded by woods, fears, dreams, troubles, a small group of underdogs, abusive parents, older bullies who are also violent delinquents.
In this film though there's no supernatural evil after anyone, the main dangers are man made, trespassing on railway lines, leeches, bullies and more.
The performances and characters are all good, quite believable a group of boys who act tough but are still children deep down. The film absolutely nails the bravado, the bickering and the strong friendships that boys form at this age. The dialogue is fast, messy and sounds natural. It is slow in parts but concludes in a satisfying end. It feels largely realistic and not too Hollywood. The film is also broken up with a soundtrack straight from American Graffiti. The props and costumes really sell the period setting. Everything looks like it was filmed practically too another huge bonus, I can just picture the kids today running in front of some terrible green screen if this was shot today.

My main issue with the film is the complete freedom the boys have to just disappear for days. The parents are always conveniently removed from these kinds of stories to allow the adventure to happen.
The narration I'm not sure was really needed either to follow the story.
