Do not adjust your television...,
This review is from: Un Coeur En Hiver [DVD]  (DVD)
This film is one of my all time favourites (hence the four stars) so when I heard about it coming out on DVD it became my most eagerly anticipated release... However the screenshots on the back cover look as if they were run off using the office photocopier - doesn't exactly fill you with confidence and with good reason. For the most part the picture is adequate but in occasional scenes reminds you of a colourised b&w film. The sound is good, the dialog is clear as are the subtitles - although I would like to know why there were spelling mistakes and some blindingly obvious typos - don't these people have a spell checker?
Don't get me wrong I loved watching this film again and maybe I'm a little over-sensitive about the picture but this really is a bargain-bucket DVD, (static menus, no extras) with an inflated price. It's still worth getting for the film alone - an anamorphic (though you wouldn't have thought so) widescreen presentation has got to be better than your VHS copy just be aware of what you're getting.
