  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Have you ever wondered how snowflakes are made, or how a flower gets it color

DVD Picture:
The computer-animated, anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD shows very good resolution and deep black levels, which, when combined with the nicely rendered shadows, gives the picture a natural, dimensional appearance. The color scheme used is broad, and colors are balanced well with good saturation. Fleshtones appear fairly natural, assuming that fairies have skin colors similar to humans, and contrast is balanced nicely. Compression artifacts are minor and not overly distracting, and edge enhancement is rarely noticeable. (Danny Richelieu)
