Some remarks on this release,
This review is from: Trilogy: The Weeping Meadow [DVD] (DVD)As for the film itself, I cannot add anything that hasn't already been said in those reviews that contain words like "masterpiece" or "epic". But I have a few technical remarks on this DVD release that some of you may be interested in.
Image Ratio: 16:9 (1:1.78)
Soundtrack: AC3 2.0 - pitch-corrected
- Interview with Theo Angelopoulos (26 min.)
- Theatrical Trailer
- Theo Angelopoulos Filmography & Short Biography
Note that this release does *not* have the "booklet with a print interview with Angelopoulos, an abridged modern Greek history timeline, and an essay by the director" the region 1 NTSC release by New Yorker Films comes with.
The outstanding feature for me though is the pitch-corrected soundtrack, i.e. even though the film runs slightly faster on a PAL DVD (25 fps) than at the cinema (24 fps), the sound you hear has the correct pitch. To my knowledge, far too few PAL DVDs are mastered with such care. Big plus here, especially in combination with this film's stunningly beautiful music.
