  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
When he was a young man Ram

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 2.40:1 DVD picture has a nicely rendered appearance, exhibiting a well balanced (if slightly understated) color scheme, accurate fleshtones, and deep blacks. Images exhibit satisfying sharpness and detail, and natural contrast and shadow delineation. There is no obtrusive edge enhancement, and only occasional pixelization. There is some film grain inherent in the source element that contributes an occasional gritty texture, but otherwise the picture is clean and smooth. (Suzanne Hodges)
