The first portion of the film is in black-and-white as it takes place in World War II Hungary; the lack of color adds to the atmosphere, as does the actors speaking Hungarian. The digital transfer looks OK in black-and-white, but it seems to have been shot on color film stock and then de-colorized, giving the grays less shimmer. The color sequences are fine, crisp, and clear, and the Dolby Digital 5.1 sound is up to the standards you'd expect from Paramount. The alternate audio track commentary by old friends -- director Eva Garos and producer Colleen Camp -- who met on the set of Apocalypse Now 25 years ago, is informal and chatty, and illuminates the personal aspects of Garos' touching story of her childhood. The theatrical trailer is included.
