  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Loving the stories that his grandmother (Farrow) tells him at bedtime,

DVD Picture:
The live-action day scenes can have an unnaturally hot color scheme in the anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD presentation, but the computer-animated sequences look more accurate and are highly detailed. Interestingly, later in the movie, colors in the live-action scenes look natural. Details are captured well enough, but there are occasions when the image can have a soft, smeared look.
