The 1.66:1 DVD is not anamorphically enhanced, and often appears very smeared and lacking detail and dimension. Colors are rich, with full saturation, though definition between hues is often lacking. Different film formats are used for a picture that often looks like a documentary. While some scenes look generally nice, overall the image quality is unimpressive. Fine film grain is revealed throughout, occasionally appearing excessive. This is not a DVD that one would use for show-and-tell in their home theatre, as it does not well represent the format.
