Based on the novel Our Sunshine by Robert Drewe, Gregor Jordan
The anamorphically enhanced 2.40:1 DVD picture is often stylized with a cold, desaturated appearance. Still, other times the color palette is nicely saturated with rich greens, bold blues, natural fleshtones, and deep blacks. Images are sharp and detailed, with nicely rendered textures and satisfying clarity. The cinematography is often intriguing and engulfing, with some creatively captured images. Contrast and shadow delineation are well balanced. Edge enhancement and pixelization are limited, for a picture that is solid and nicely rendered overall. (Suzanne Hodges)
Reason #48 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
In addition to Widescreen Review, I subscribe to several audio/video publications, such as Sound And Vision, Stereophile, Stereophile Guide To Home Theater, Audio Video Interiors, and peruse through the myriad of British audio video publications when I go to Borders, Barnes & Nobles, or Tower Records. I must acknowledge that Widescreen Review is one of the better ones because it is more like a trade publication than a magazine full of advertisements. Moreover, Widescreen Review was one of the first publications to delve into DVI and more importantly, HMDI, which I deem important because it can make a lot of the current products out there obsolete. Put simply, Widescreen Review is The New York Times of audio/video publication. In other words, if you want real news, you read The New York Times. To stay on top of what’s happening in the audio/video industry, you read Widescreen Review. Enough said.
