Stupidly programmed DVD,
This review is from: Babette's Feast [DVD]  (DVD)
Babette's Feast [DVD] 
This refers to the MGM Region 2 DVD.
This edition is presented with the option of the original Danish/French language soundtrack with English subtitles - which is eaxctly how you'd want to watch it. The film is a non-anamorphic presentation, which means if you watch it in normal 4x3 mode, there's a black bar on the top and bottom of the picture. The film originally was shot in a 1.66:1 ratio, which means you ideally want to zoom in a little (to 14:9) so that the image fits lengthways onto a widescreen TV. However if you do that, half of the subtitles are missing!
