No edge enhancement, dirt, or other imperfections were spotted throughout the entire length of the film. The soundtrack is presented in Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround in English. Aside of a few enveloping war scenes, this is a fairly subdued soundtrack that is focused in the front and center speakers. All aspects of the soundtrack are free and clear of any excessive hiss or distortion. Also included on this disc are English, Spanish, and French subtitles. The extra features included on this DVD edition of Charlotte Gray start off with an engaging audio commentary track by director Gillian Armstrong. This is a very brisk, enlightening track that should please fans looking to learn more about the film's production history.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
Chalk up another personal triumph for the versatile Cate Blanchett, whose passionate portrayal of the title character further distinguishes an already exemplary film set during World War II. She’s mesmerizing as the Scottish lass who becomes an undercover courier in hopes of one day finding her lost lover, a pilot shot down behind enemy lines. Parachuting into France, Charlotte attaches herself to a group of freedom fighters whose charismatic leader Billy Crudup gradually wins her affection. The day-to-day activities of the French Resistance are recounted in painstaking detail; we see every stone thrown, every shot fired by the ragtag guerrillas whose refusal to acknowledge Nazi supremacy compels them to fight back with every means available. Director Gillian Armstrong Little Women, in addition to vividly replicating time and place, captures every emotion -- fear, desperation, euphoria, triumph -- felt by these characters as they strike at the German aggressors. Their struggle becomes very real to us, and for two hours we’re drawn back to that turbulent time, in which love flourished in the face of unimaginable heartache and privation. Blanchett submerges herself completely in the character of Charlotte, and the integrity of her performance goes a long way toward making this movie one of the most memorable wartime dramas of recent years. Armstrong offers commentary on the DVD edition, which also includes cast-crew highlights and theatrical trailers.
All Movie Guide
Charlotte Gray had both the credentials and the post-Christmas release date of a traditional Oscar hopeful. Not only was it a World War II/Holocaust drama sprinkled with romance and intrigue, starring a recent Oscar nominee (Cate Blanchett), but the director (Gillian Armstrong) was known for her finesse with female-oriented material (Little Women). None of this helped Charlotte Gray reach a wide audience, and it utterly failed to register. Never less than stately and competent, the film suffers from a lack of clarity in both the plot and the performances. Charlotte's narrative function as a spy is even harder to pinpoint than Billy Crudup's indifferent French accent. Blanchett herself is incapable of being bad, but she bears the weight of Armstrong's overly emotional directing style, which whips numerous scenes into angst-ridden frenzies, often without justification. Armstrong's intended epic sweep is born out by the cinematography and the faithful attention to period design. But her adaptation of Sebastian Faulks' novel owes too much to wartime romances like The English Patient and The End of the Affair, without carrying the weight or distinction to join their rank. Armstrong believes that war naturally engenders heroes and lends grandeur to each desperate human action. She forgets that universal acclaim is not so easy to come by for historical melodramas -- especially when they lack the ring of truth.

Blanchett, who gets better with every performance, takes hold of this movie with a firm but subtle hand. Desson Howe

Charlotte is another fine portrait for Blanchett's growing gallery. Mick LaSalle

    An overlooked, Oscar-worthy movie!
