Good film Wrong Aspect Ratio
on September 8, 2007
Enjoyed this film very much, its very warm and funny in a light way.
The picture looks great too, however the original film was filmed in 2.35:1 but the dvd release is cropped down to 1.77:1. The bonus footage is all in the original 2.35:1 and you can see how much of the film is lost due to cropping it down for 16x9 tv's. Its too bad a lot of UK movies are sold like this in N. America. The point of buying widescreen dvd's is to see them as they were shown in theatres without being physically edited down.
