Brink of Life DVD-R: A Product Review,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Brink Of Life (DVD)
First off, I knew I was taking a chance by purchasing this DVD. The fact is, I'm in love with Ingmar Bergman, Ingrid Thulin, and Bibi Andersson, so I absolutely had to get it.
The packaging is this: A clear, single disc DVD case. No artwork (just a sticker with a barcode and the name of the movie, year, and country on the front), and literally a DVD-R. The text on the front of the DVD-R itself says: (At the Top: BRINK OF LIFE (1957-Sweden); At the bottom: Published By: Mad Phat Enterprises 2009 Copyright: Video Yesteryear 1983).
Considering this item was being shipped from Amazon, I expected a more official, quality product. I was warned on the item page, so I hold no bad feelings.
Then for the movie: There is no title menu, or main menu. The feature itself is a transfer from a videotape that has been put onto the DVD-R you end up buying. At the very beginning of the disc, you see the word "PLAY" in the top left-hand corner of the screen. The picture quality isn't great, but if you really want to see the movie, it will work.
The movie is amazing, the packaging is whatever. I was warned, and you have been too. I give it three stars.
