Movie Reviews

Horrible transfer, and bad subtitles
A Mason | 05/04/2009
(1 out of 5 stars)

"This review is for the DVD, not the film. This DVD transfer (by Facets Multimedia) is one of the WORST I have ever seen: the colors are washed out, the image is blurry with tons of artifacts, and there are frequent flickers--it actually blinks from one color to another and then back again! They also letterboxed the film in a 4:3 ratio instead of showing it in its original, widescreen ratio.
On top of that, the subtitle translation is not idiomatic English; there are many awkward phrases to the point of distraction. There is even a five-minute (!) advertisement preceding the main movie. It's shameless that the distributor would even put a product like this out. So unfortunate that they botched this film by a key director of Iranian new wave cinema. If you must, rent the movie but do NOT buy this DVD!"
