During the politically turbulent late-1960s in Paris, American Student Matthew (Pitt) engulfs himself in studies and French cinema. When Matthew meets cinema-obsessed Isabelle (Green) and her close (very close) brother, Theo (Garrel), he is invited to live with them. And while the political revolution rages on outside, the three cinemaphiles become involved in adolescent sexual games and one-upmanship. The Dreamers is based on Gilbert Adair
The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD picture is quite lovely, with an enveloping color palette that is nicely saturated. While hues are often awash in moody warm hues, (the plentiful) fleshtones are well balanced and blacks are deep and solid. The picture is sharp and nicely textured, with pleasing contrast and shadow delineation. There is no obtrusive edge enhancement or pixelization noticed. (Suzanne Hodges)
Dialogue reproduction is natural with good tonal characteristics in this Dolby
Reason #19 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
Iíve been reading WSR since Issue 1. I have never had any problem, any misunderstanding, or any doubt about their published articles or interviews. They are absolutely thrust full. The articles look like a Master Business Course. It is a fantastic well-written magazine with brilliant topics, thanks to the capacity of the editors and their teams. Years ago, I discussed this in Las Vegas with a George Lucas THX engineer, and at the end of two hours he agreed with me. My information was based on all the WSR issues I had read.
