A perfect import, a perfect release.,

This review is from: A Tree of Palme (DVD)
This is not going to be a review of the movie. IMDB exists for that purpose; go there for that. This is a technical review of the medium the movie is presented on.
THIS IS HOW YOU RELEASE A FOREIGN FILM. Beautifully transferred, the original aspect ratio of the work is preserved and presented in anamorphic widescreen. The image quality is perfect, color, sharpness, and such. Both the original and English audio tracks are included, and the subtitles are masterfully done and timed (and they're yellow; I LOVE yellow subs!). In addition to the movie, you get all the extras they could get. There is the (must-include) "making of" featurette, which includes the director/writer interview, some history behind the project, and footage from film festivals during the International premiere. There are art galleries and some storyboards. NICE.
The only flaw of this release is the kind of ads they play before jumping to the main menu; COMPLETELY OUT-OF-PLACE and really distracting. But those are not the part of the feature, and can be skipped (must be, always).
All in all, if you want to get this movie, be prepared for a perfect deal, for everything about this release is right (if you ignore the ads of course).
