  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Sydney Wells (Alba) is a successful violinist who has been blind since the age of five. Her years of darkness are coming to an end, as a cornea donor is found, enabling Sydney to undergo a vision-restoring operation. With the operation deemed a success, Sydney soon begins to see again

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 2.32:1 DVD exhibits a desaturated appearance, which combines with the cool color scheme to give it a spectral appearance. Black levels are elevated slightly, but not distractingly so. Shadow delineation is nicely rendered, helping create a nice sense of depth. Contrast is fairly well balanced, but the image overall seems too dim. Fleshtones also have a greenish hue, with unnaturally saturated highlights. Infrequent dirt speckles are noticeable throughout, and edge enhancement is subtle, but neither are overly distracting. Resolution is solid, and the image looks clean of compression artifacts.(Danny Richelieu)
