Great film. Poor DVD transfer,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Celia [DVD]  (DVD)
I saw this film when it came out at the cinema and loved its originality and evocation of the period and childhood.
So why three stars ? I have around 800 DVDs / Blu Rays and this was the first time I wrote to Amazon to complain about the quality. The problem is 'jaggies', like the resolution is very low.
Thus for example during the Bar-B-Q around 13:44 the white shirt collar isn't smooth but has 'jaggies'.
My Blu Ray player - Panasonic DMP-BDT500 - is modern and well-regarded and I've not experienced this problem with any other DVDs. I can't understand therefore why the director supposedly approved this digital transfer. (if someone explains how to do so, I can post a photo to illustrate)
