Video quality isn't the best.
10 February 2005 | by See all my reviews

When I originally voted for this film, I gave it a 10 because it is a truly captivating film if you enjoy this type of music (folk/celtic/Middle Eastern...the unique combination that is Dead Can Dance). This was after I viewed a VHS tape of the film. Now that I own the DVD (comes with the DCD box set), I have had a chance to see it in a different format. The DVD video quality should be better than it is. The film was probably recorded in standard (vs. widescreen) format, so that is the only way it is viewed. The picture is a little grainy on the DVD (just as the VHS was). For all my gripes about how ARTISAN should have cleaned up the picture, this is still a great DVD. The sound is excellent and the extra features are there (although there aren't too many).
