Rachel Rosenthal (Van Houten) is a Jewish woman who lived in Holland during World War II. When her family was killed during a Nazi raid, Rachel escaped and joined the Dutch Resistance. Willing to do whatever had to be done to help her cause, Rachel began an affair with German Captain Ludwig Muntze (Koch), where she found herself caught up in a tangled web of espionage. Black Book was inspired by true events. (Tricia Spears)
While colors look unnaturally bold and vibrant, the anamorphically enhanced 2.37:1 DVD can look quite good with believable dimensionality brought on by its deep blacks and impressive shadow delineation. While many hues, such as deep blues and reds, can look too deeply saturated, greens generally look natural, and fleshtones have a natural tone. Details can be delivered well at times, but often the imagery can look flat and under-defined. Pixilation can be a problem, but edge enhancement is not overly noticeable. (Danny Richelieu)

Reason #71 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
Before reading WSR I was an electronics nebbish. After reading WSR for more than a year, my friends and family consult me on purchasing TVs, sound systems, DVD players, and DVDs. I explain to them the differences between HDTV ready and capable, how to select a TV, DVD, and sound system and recommend that they become an expert like me by buying a copy of WSR. My life has new meaning!
