DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.82:1 DVD shows nicely balanced colors with natural-looking fleshtones. The image generally has a soft look, with some smearing of the details, taking away from the realism of the picture.

Pixel breakup is also noticeable from time to time, and source element artifacts can also be recognized. (Danny Richelieu)
