Marvellous cd with a wonderful warm,detailed soundstage.Modern recording engineers would do well to study the methods of the Decca (and others) engineers of the late 50s and 60s...the golden era of recorded stereo sound.Buy with confidence and be prepared to be delighted.

This review is from: Black Robe [Blu-Ray] (Blu-ray)
The snow scenes are ravishing... so detailed and clear. The Canadian scenery looks spectacular.The Canadian Tourist Board must be rubbing their hands with glee.First 10 mins or so not the greatest...some grainy scenes but improves dramatically after that.Pity the sound is only Dolby Digital 2 but it doesn't spoil things.Also no English sub- titles unfortunately.But overall a wonderful experience. Marvellous dramatic music score by the way.Just listen to the Requiem. Buy with confidence and be prepared to be delighted. We don't see films of this quality too often.

Amazon clearly states that the FREMANTLEMEDIA ( front bottom right corner)version is widescreen.It is Not. It's a very average picture quality 4:3 aspect. I just hate being taken for a ride. Get your act together Amazon.
