This is a review of the DVD. The film itself is a wonderful and inventive absurdist comedy with some very fine dark humour. However, the DVD is a travesty. There are three huge problems with the DVD: (1) It is in FULLSCREEN, not WIDESCREEN as the DVD packaging claims which means much of the film image is missing from the theatrical release. (2) The DVD package claims the film is in COLOUR. This is also false. Over 90% of the film is in black and white with a few colour sequences. This doesn't bother me - false claims do. (3) The transfer quality is the worst I have ever seen and with over 500 DVD titles in my DVD collection that really says something - I cannot express how poor the quality is - honestly, it looks like an army of cats scratched the film to pieces. I saw "Saddest Music In The World" in the cinema and it looked NOTHING like this. There was deliberate grain and some scratching to give the film an aged 1930's look, but, the DVD transfer, and I'm not joking, looks worse than silent films made around 1915 - my DVD copy of "The Cabinet Of Dr. Caligari" looks pristine in comparison. I feel totally ripped off and disgusted by this release and the companies responsible should be ashamed to have their names associated with this truly disgraceful butcher job of a superb film. I threw my money out the window when I purchased this DVD. BUYER BEWARE!!!
