The aspect ratio is 1:85:1, which is the original, as detailed on [...].
The sound is robust (I heard the 5.1 DTS-HD master). Sounds are strong, dialogues are clear, and Phillip Glass' music is well enhanced.
Since it's a bare bones release (as most Alliance blu-rays have been), you can't escape the feeling that this is a "provisional" BD, something that you will have to replace with whatever edition they release in the United States or somewhere else. But if you're not a friend of extras and bonus materials, and don't even need subtitles of any kind, this is a good option.
Other options for audio are: English 5.1 Dolby Digital and French 5.1 Dolby Digital.
I recommend it to everybody.
I guess as an audience we are jaded with the onslaught of ghost stories and "seeing dead people" that the story and outcome is predictable, not that anyone took too much effort to hide. At least a fact or a butler did not pop out of the closet at the last minute.
However, the presentation was excellent with the film having a slight flicker gives a hand cranked quality to it. Inspector Uhl (Paul Giamatti) tells the story in third person. The music that accompanies the film was by Philip Glass. Once again, Rufus Sewell (Fortinbras "Hamlet -1996") does an excellent portrayal of Crown Prince Leopold.
and he gets the best of the royalty - good movie to get - you watch it intently and no talking and
a few gasps I really enjoyed it and watching after a long time, you catch everything he does but how,
have to figure that out, if one can. Good movie.
