  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
A very young Diane Lane stars as Lauren, a gifted young girl studying in France who is approached by insatiable young film buff, and equally as intelligent, Daniel

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD exhibits a picture that appears a bit dated with slightly weak color fidelity, though hues are generally well balanced. Images can appear sharp, but finer details and definition are limited. Pixelization causes the breakup of finer details, and bothersome edge enhancement is noticed on occasion. Source element artifacts and film grain are also noticed. (Suzanne Hodges)
