  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Based on the play by August Strindberg, Miss Julie stars Saffron Burrows as the daughter of a Count in the late19th Century. Enjoying the good life at their country estate, a grand celebration is planned in which the servants are allowed to partake. Young Julie puts some serious drunken moves on Jean (Mullan), the Count

DVD Picture:
The 1.85:1 DVD is not anamorphically enhanced, and exhibits a soft picture throughout. Fine detail is lacking throughout. A slight yellowish-green tint is apparent throughout the color balance, with undefined blacks and no true whites. Shadow delineation is mediocre, with little definition in the darker scenes. The picture can be very busy with pixelization. Fine film grain and artifacts are noticed. This title falls short of the quality of today's DVDs-anamorphic or letterbox, perhaps due to its small-negative origination.
